Why study Horticulture?

You will study diverse areas including the intensive production of fruit, vegetable, nursery and floricultural crops; turf; and the use of plants for recreational and therapeutic benefit, or to enhance the urban landscape.

As a horticulturist you will work to improve plant yield, quality, nutritional value and resistance to insects, diseases and environmental stresses through the use of scientific techniques in plant breeding, biochemistry, physiology and propagation.

What you can study

Students will undertake a year-long independent research project in the field of horticulture that addresses a current challenge/problem within the industry, as well as courses in research methodologies, research communication, and entrepreneurship. The research project encompasses design, implementation and presentation of research in the field of horticulture. The research project will have an emphasis on defining the research issue, establishing methodology, undertaking appropriate statistical analysis of data and drawing defensible conclusions.
