Horticulture Technology AAS


PURPOSE: The Horticulture Technology program is designed to prepare students for a wide range of horticulture careers. Training is available for those who seek to begin a career track, and those who are changing careers. Individuals already in the green industry are invited to improve or upgrade their skills and knowledge with appropriate courses.

OCCUPATIONAL OBJECTIVES: The program offers hands-on laboratory work and classroom instruction in the design-install-maintain aspects of landscaping, in floral design, and in production of horticultural materials. Many of our graduates own and operate their own businesses, while others are employed by corporate, commercial, or governmental entities.

ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS: General college curricular admission

PROGRAM NOTES: Students in the Horticulture Technology program must complete a basic core of specified horticulture technology and general education courses. In addition, in consultation with the program head, the students will select technical courses that match their career objectives.

Students who already have a two-year, four-year, or graduate degree should request that their transcripts be sent to the college registrar if transfer credit is desired. It is strongly recommended that students meet with the program head or counselor either before registering or early in their first semester of study.

COMPUTER COMPETENCY REQUIREMENT: Students in this program will meet the college’s computer competency requirement by successfully completing ITE 152 . Students can also meet this requirement by passing the college’s computer competency exam, administered in the testing centers on each campus, in which case they will receive college credit for ITE 152 . Students not passing the computer competency exam may retake the exam only once.
