HORTICULTURE ORNAMENTAL - OHT

MISSION: The mission of the Horticulture program is to educate students in horticulture science and practice through various delivery systems including regular courses, cooperative experiences, and seminars. The Horticulture program prepares students for successful employment or advancement in the horticulture industry. Students receive instruction in soils, fertilizers, plant propagation, and horticultural science.

Everyone enjoys attractively designed residential areas, public parks and playgrounds, college campuses, shopping centers, golf courses, parkways, and industrial parks. In planning the site horticulture specialists first consider the nature and purpose of the project and the funds available. They analyze the natural elements of the site, such as the climate, soil, slope of the land, drainage, and vegetation; observe where sunlight falls on the site at different times of the day and examine the site from various angles; and assess the effect of existing buildings, roads, walkways, and utilities on the project. The horticulture specialist enjoys working outdoors and bringing design projects to fruition. This program consists of one short certificate and one A.A.S. degree.
