Undergraduate Degrees Graduate Degrees Certificate Programs

Welcome to the Department of Horticulture. The discipline of Horticulture is the science and art of the production, marketing, and use of high-value, intensively cultivated plants.  For more information about this discipline, visit Seed Your Future, our infographic or our What is Horticulture page

The Department's mission is to prepare our students for horticulture-related careers in science and business. This includes making new discoveries in the plant sciences; promoting the use of plants and food for improved human health and a safe environment; improving the characteristics, quality and availability of horticultural products; and strengthening the competitive position of the world's horticultural industries. Faculty members possess a diverse array of expertise - both interdisciplinary (e.g., breeding, genomics, development, physiology, metabolism, molecular biology, and sustainable production), and commodity based (e.g., fruits/pomology, vegetables, viticulture, floriculture, nursery crops, postharvest, design and landscape ecology, and marketing) - which they utilize in their research, teaching and outreach programs, at both the national and international levels.
