Do you enjoy gardening? Are you captivated by beautiful landscapes?

The horticulture degree program at San Juan College blends science and hands-on skills. You'll learn landscape architecture and construction, conservation techniques, horticulture techniques, and how to diagnose plant disorders. We have a separate program that focuses on xeric, or arid, environments. Graduates may seek employment as architectural apprentices, landscape design technicians, nursery manager, or work with government and private industry.

For more information on courses and requirements for the Horticulture program check our Program Plan.
