What is Horticulture at WVU like?
Horticulture is the science of the production, processing and marketing of fruit, vegetable, greenhouse and landscape crops. In our program, you will study the physiology, culture, harvest, quality control, sales and utilization of horticultural crops.
Plan to experience a vast amount of learning outside the classroom – and get a little dirty – in our state-of-the-art greenhouse where you’ll learn skills like propagation and plant production.
The nature of horticulture has changed as areas become more urban. Our program focuses on landscape management and production of nursery and greenhouse plants, which help meet the aesthetic needs in growing urban environments.
