Horticulture Degrees in Australia

  • Study Horticulture

    Defined as the culture of plants for food, comfort and beauty, horticulture is the cultivation, processing, and sale of fruits, nuts, vegetables, ornamental plants, and flowers as well as many additional services. Horticulture includes plant conservation, soil management, landscape restoration, garden and landscape design, construction and maintenance, and arboriculture.

    The knowledge you gain on a horticulture course will allow you to grow plants and flowers for human food and non-food uses and for personal or social needs. You will learn about resistance to insects, diseases, as well as the environmental issues surrounding intensive farming processes. Horticulture is a popular subject for students who are interested in the social elements of agriculture.

    Coursework

    If you choose a horticulture degree course, you may have to study several science based modules. These might include plant biology, botany, plant disease diagnostics and soil science. Because horticulture also involves the production and sale of plants, you may be required to study some business modules.

    The degree will be delivered in a mixture of modes. These will include classroom work, laboratory work and some experience in a practical horticulture environment. This might be either on campus, or off campus as part of a placement.
