X--Associate Diploma Programs, Associate Diploma in Horticulture

The nursery, landscaping, turf and floriculture segments of the horticulture industry are areas of sustained growth and development in Ontario and Canada. The Diploma in Horticulture program provides a basic curriculum in ornamental horticulture and an opportunity to take specialized courses in various components of the industry. Practical experience and training complements the more formal material presented in lectures and provides an opportunity to acquire the practical skills required in greenhouse and landscaping firms.

The Diploma in Horticulture program is offered at all four colleges and prepares students for a variety of career opportunities in landscaping, nursery and greenhouse firms, municipal parks and golf courses, garden centres and private businesses.
