What will I learn?

First year studies begin with required courses that allow you to build your knowledge in the bio-sciences, plant production techniques, and business applications. By taking such a range of required courses, you'll have opportunities to discover and develop your interests.

In second year, the program allows you to choose from a wide variety of elective courses, giving you the flexibility to match courses to your interests and career goals. With the help of a knowledgeable program advisor, you'll choose 12 courses in subjects like edible horticulture, ornamental horticulture, agronomy, plant science, business, or even engineering.
