Many bachelor’s degree programs lead naturally to graduate-level education. One option at this level is a master’s degree. Master's programs generally provide professional training towards a particular career.

Those students with an undergraduate background in earth sciences or related fields may be interested to know what is a Master in Horticulture. The field of horticulture seeks human engagement with the environment to provide creative solutions to solve problems relating to agriculture, landscape design, and the ways in which people utilize the land. Subfields and areas of specialization may include floriculture, greenhouse technology, viticulture, water conservation, plant breeding, dietary intervention, and agricultural ecosystems.

Completing a master’s degree in horticulture can provide students with improved skills in communication, particularly as it relates to sharing and presenting knowledge about horticulture research, strategy, and design. Furthermore, graduates should be able to identify and assess various problems and solutions relating to landscapes and agriculture.

With full-time study programs, a Master in Horticulture can be completed in approximately two years. Part-time programs may take up to three to five years. Financial costs vary depending on the location of instruction.

Depending on the student’s specialization, a master’s degree in horticulture can lead to a wide variety of careers. These may be based in research, landscape design, conservation, cultivation, biogenetics, or marketing. Examples of specific careers include landscape architect, biogeneticist, molecular scientist, or professor or lecturer. Other options include working as a manager for a nursery, conservatory, or public garden; starting a business as fruit or vegetable producer; or inspecting the quality of agricultural production run by private or public corporations.

Horticulture graduate courses are offered in many countries around the globe. There are also options to take part or all of the program online. 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. -

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. -

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. -

​The goal of the Plant Science Program is to develop a thorough understanding of plant growth and function under challenging environmental conditions, such as those found in Saudi Arabia. The fundamental biology of plants is studied at a range of levels (e.g. genomic, proteomic, metabolomics), and the interactions of plants with their environment, both abiotic (heat, salt, and drought) and biotic (pathogens and symbionts) are investigated. Application of this knowledge will allow development of plants with enhanced tolerance to environmental stresses and help to establish sustainable agriculture systems in arid regions of the world. -
