Graduate Minor in Horticulture (Ph.D. only)
Horticulture faculty are supportive of students from other disciplines who wish to minor in Horticulture. A student who wishes to minor in Horticulture should consult a regular (non-adjunct) member of the Horticulture faculty. This faculty member must be appointed to the student’s graduate advisory committee, and may be the doctoral student’s Major Advisor.
The requirements for the Minor in Horticulture are 6 credits (graded) of Hort 5xx, attendance of Hort 509 (Seminar) at least one semester per academic year, and presentation of one Hort 510 graduate seminar. In addition, the graduate student is strongly encouraged to participate in one new graduate student, state-wide tour before the Fall semester. The Horticulture faculty committee member will determine if there are horticultural research components that are required to fulfill a Minor in Horticulture and if oral and/or written examinations, as outlined by the Graduate School, are applicable. A written statement outlining these requirements, signed by the student, the faculty member, and the Chair of the Department of Horticulture, should be filed with the Academic Coordinator in the Department of Horticulture.
