Other Graduate Certificate Courses in Horticultural Science

Five courses (15 credit hours) are required. The student and his/her advisor will select from a list of horticulture science courses. At least three courses in the certificate must be from the Department of Horticultural Science.

The remaining two courses may also be from horticultural science, or from one of the following areas: Agricultural and Resource Economics, Agricultural and Extension Education, Biological and Agricultural Engineering, Crop Science, Entomology, Food Science, Plant Pathology, and Soil Science.

Please note: Not all courses are offered each semester, and courses may be cancelled occasionally due to low enrollment. Check with your advisor and consult DELTA’s current course catalog for the most up-to-date course listings.
