Horticultural Science

The Graduate Certificate in Horticultural Science is an individually designed program in horticultural science. To earn your graduate certificate, you need to complete 15 credit hours. No thesis or dissertation is required. Courses are taught via the web so you won’t need time off from work or face long commutes to campus. Each student is assigned an advisor and consults with the advisor to design his or her program. Because of the diversity of subject matter and learner interest, students may concentrate in such areas as general horticulture, food horticulture, and ornamental horticulture and may also include a limited number of courses from other academic areas within agriculture.
