Graduate Program in Horticulture
Graduate study for M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Horticulture is available to qualified students who have an undergraduate degree from accredited institutions in horticulture, or in related plant sciences including botany, crop science, environmental sciences , or professions related to landscape design. Non-plant science degree applicants with substantial experience in related professions may also qualify.
Research training, academic guidance and career counseling are provided by graduate faculty in the College of Agricultural Sciences, and on campus interdisciplinary graduate programs such as Food Science/Safety, the Graduate Degree Program in Ecology, the Cell and Molecular Biology Program and the Plant Molecular Biology Program. Research options include opportunities to concentrate on laboratory, field, greenhouse or design projects. Program diversity is enhanced by external financial support, which includes contributions from the State of Colorado, horticultural and agrochemical industries, international government sources and federal granting agencies such as the USDA, NIH, DOD, EPA and the NSF. The environment created by cooperation between faculty involved in applied and basic research and extension allows students to develop a broad professional science and applied horticultural base.
