A Master of Science is a postgraduate degree that dives deeper into subjects within science and technology. Shortened to MSc, this degree is awarded after one to three years of study, depending on your course load and chosen school.

What is an MSc in Horticulture? This degree goes into the biological aspect of harvested plants, including how best to breed, grow, harvest, store, and ship fruits, vegetables, and decorative plants. Some programs require studying postharvest biology and statistics, while others are more focused on environmentally sound practices and protecting food sources. Expect to complete this degree with a deeper understanding of where your produce comes from.

Resource management, attention to detail, and food hygiene are three skills you may gain while studying horticulture. Managing resources, such as time, and paying attention to the little things can increase your productivity. Food hygiene can help you extend the life of your own produce.

To determine the cost of an MSc in Horticulture, consider where your school is located and whether you will be moving to that location or studying online. Other costs may include registration and book purchases, which you can sometimes find out about in advance.

With a degree in horticulture, you can apply for jobs in pest control, arboreal management, landscaping, and plant breeding, to name a few. If you focus on preharvest technology, you could look for jobs such as harvest management and tool production. With a postharvest focus, look for careers in distribution and storage. Finally, with an environmental focus, you can look for jobs in plant protection, sustainability, and international aid.

Multiple schools around the world have horticulture departments with multiple focuses to choose from. This gives you a lot of options when pursuing your degree. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.

Life on Earth depends on solar energy captured by plants - they are the base of most food webs and underpin the functioning of all major ecosystems. Plants release the oxygen we breath. They convert solar energy into chemical energy, providing us with food, fibres, renewable energy sources, and raw materials for many industries. Plants do not carry out these processes in isolation. They interact with other organisms and the physical and chemical environment, communicate and actively adjust to their circumstances. How do they do these things at molecular, physiological and functional levels and how can we profit from understanding that? When you have graduated from the Master’s Programme in Integrative Plant Sciences you will have the current answers, based on cutting-edge research by our scientists, to these big questions, and more. -

Animal and plant breeding are driving the development of new livestock and crop varieties that can cope with the challenges of the changing environment and consumers' demand. Breeding research integrates areas such as quantitative and molecular genetics, biotechnology, and breeding informatics. It has close links to neighboring fields like animal and plant nutrition, animal health, and crop protection, but also marketing, economics, and ethics. Highly specialized experts in this field are required worldwide and have excellent career opportunities in both academia and industry. The International Master Program Integrated Plant and Animal Breeding provides a profoundly interdisciplinary approach to breeding research by bridging the gap between animal and plant breeding; covers all relevant disciplines of breeding research; and is supplemented by external lecturers from leading international breeding companies, research institutions, and national authorities. -

The understanding of plant diversity and resources has never been more important. As we face the unprecedented challenges of climate change and environmental degradation, effective environmental surveillance and conservation depend upon detailed knowledge of plants and their habitats. This programme is run jointly by the University and the world-renowned Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh (RBGE). The RBGE is home to one of the world’s best living collections of plants (15,000 species across four sites, amounting to five per cent of known world species), a herbarium of three million preserved specimens and one of the UK’s most comprehensive botanical libraries. -

Plants form the basis of many ecosystems and will play a fundamental role in meeting the 70% increase of global food production demanded by the United Nations by the year 2050. Thus, it is essential that we learn more about how plants function, evolve and interact with their surroundings so that they can be better utilised in the development of a sustainable society. Due to habitat loss and a changing climate, we also need to increase our understanding of the mechanisms that are involved in the generation, maintenance and loss of plant biodiversity. This programme will develop your understanding of and skills about plants, dealing with subjects ranging from molecular and cellular biology to evolutionary dynamics at the species and population level. It provides a foundation for continued studies at the doctoral level but also opens doors to employment within the public sector, forestry and agricultural organisations, ecological and conservation consultancy, plant breeding and education. -
