Horticulture Technology will prepare you for a
career working with plants. This program teaches you greenhouse
management, landscape design and installation, landscape maintenance,
and nursery management. You will learn to identify and select planting
materials, to propagate and grow plants. Irrigation design and
interiorscaping are also covered.
Horticulture Technology curriculum encompasses the study and practical
application of a variety of subjects in the field of horticulture. The
curriculum consists of identifying and selecting plant materials,
propagating, planting, and growing plants, designing basic landscapes,
and planting materials at the appropriate places and in the correct
manner, properly maintaining plant materials, and managing the nursery,
greenhouse, or horticulture business.
addition, skills are developed in designing and building planters,
walks, patios, fences, decks and other landscape features. The
curriculum is designed to provide students with the knowledge, skills,
and attitudes that are necessary for independent, creative thinking
essential to success in this field.
graduates decide to start their own business upon graduation, while
others work for businesses in the horticulture industry. A few students
further their education by attending a four-year institution to receive
their B. S. Degree or higher in horticulture. For a current list of
some of our graduates please contact our department as listed on the
