Why Choose a Horticulture Degree at Oregon State?

Are you interested in creating a secure and sustainable food source for the future? Or, is the design, construction, and management of community and private gardens and landscapes more your speed? You can explore either of those paths as a student in the Department of Horticulture. Here we stress broad knowledge, critical thinking, active learning, analysis of novel situations, and field-based problem-solving.

You'll have the opportunity to experience Oregon's landscapes and farms up-close and personal with field trips and experiential work at our research facilities while studying for a Horticulture degree. We emphasize active learning, so you'll be out in the field exploring practices, constructing landscapes, and more.
