M.S. in Horticulture Colorado State University College of Agricultural Sciences
Our Horticulture Graduate Students
Graduate study for M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Horticulture is available to qualified students who have an undergraduate degree from accredited institutions in horticulture, or in related plant sciences including botany, crop science, environmental sciences, or professions related to landscape design. Non-plant science degree applicants with substantial experience in related professions may also qualify.
Applicants seeking graduate degrees in horticulture should have adequate preparation in the fundamental sciences (biology, chemistry, biochemistry, statistics, physics), as well as undergraduate course work in the plant sciences (e.g., agronomy, botany, ecology, horticulture, genetics, plant physiology, plant pathology, plant anatomy). Applicants lacking adequate preparation may be accepted conditionally, with the provision that recommended undergraduate courses be completed before the degree is awarded.
The graduate admissions committee accepts only those students who provide acceptable GRE and TOEFL scores, transcripts, letters of reference and a professional goals statement that show potential and promise to complete the requirements for the degree being sought. All students applying for admission to the M.S. and Ph.D. Horticulture program are expected to take the Graduate Record Examination (GRE).
