Horticulture - BA

This degree blends traditional horticulture with the benefits derived from the human association with plants. This degree offers students the option of pairing a horticulture degree with electives in social sciences, business, agricultural journalism, education, art and design. Pairing the horticulture degree with a required minor of the student's choosing from outside of horticulture provides an opportunity for a secondary area of emphasis. Creative opportunities include planning gala events, operating floral shops, constructing educational programs for school gardens, preparing one for certification to teach horticulture in public schools, marketing and management of horticultural operations, sociohorticulture, agricultural journalism or pursuing advanced degrees. Graduates may find themselves working in exciting environments including wedding venues, international flower markets, upscale resorts, improving urban environments, teaching the next generation, and in general improving the quality of life.
