Master of Science in Horticulture at a Distance
The Master of Science in Horticulture degree program at a distance is designed speciﬁcally to meet the needs of today's working professional. Horticulture is the application of basic scientific information to the growing and use of 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 use of horticultural plants.
This non-thesis 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 6 semester credit through Texas Tech University. An oral exam is required during the graduating semester.
