Master of Science in Horticulture @ a Distance
The Master of Science in Horticulture degree program at a distance is designed specifically to meet the needs of today’s working professionals. Horticulture is the art and science of cultivating edible (fruits, nuts, and vegetables) and ornamental plants (annual and perennial flowers and woody plants). Today’s horticulture students focus on the challenges and practices of genetics and breeding, propagation, biotechnology, production, management, handling and storage, marketing, and utilization of ornamental plants in both the interior and exterior landscape.
This nonthesis degree program requires a minimum of 36 semester hours of graduate coursework and is considered a terminal degree. A maximum of six hours of coursework from another institution may be evaluated for transfer to Texas Tech University. Students must take the last six semester credit hours from Texas Tech University. An oral exam is required during the graduating semester.
