                               CURRICULUM GUIDE

Horticulture
Associate in Applied Science Degree

Curriculum Code: 0189  (Effective Fall 2003 - Summer 2008)

A professional horticulturist deals with plant materials, their growth,
development, propagation, marketing, and use.  The horticulturist works with
environmental conditions and pest problems of ornamental plants and their
management.  The two major specialty areas are landscape horticulture and
floriculture.  A background in plant maintenance, knowledge of growing
environments and structures, as well as retail and marketing skills, is vital. 
Horticulturists are employed by florists, greenhouses and garden centers,
nurseries, retail sales outlets, landscape contractors, design and
construction firms, and lawn care companies.  Not all courses in this program
transfer to all colleges.  Students planning to transfer should see an
academic advisor or counselor before enrolling in any course.

PREREQUISITES
Students should see Course Descriptions or Course Offerings for course
