LANSING COMMUNITY COLLEGE

 

CURRICULUM GUIDE

 

Horticulture

Associate in Applied Science Degree

 

Curriculum Code: 0189  (Effective Fall 2004 - Summer 2009)

 

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 prerequisite information.  See the Assessment and Placement Testing section for skills assessment and advising information.
