Bachelor of Science in Agriculture (Horticulture Science)
This option is ideal for students planning to pursue graduate degrees. It is imperative that universities, state and federal agencies, and industries have trained scientists who can conduct research and convey the results of their research to the public so that horticultural products can be more effectively produced and used. A master’s degree in science prepares students to work as consultants, technical representatives, community college instructors, or county extension agents. Doctorate degree holders work at universities, USDA, and research and development firms.
