Studying Horticulture

In the Department of Agriculture at Eastern Kentucky University, we pride ourselves on experiential learning and industry networking.

In our program, students experience hands-on learning at our 1,000 acre production farm, in our green houses, teaching and research labs, mechanic shop, and garden and turf plots. Class sizes are small and engagement is high! Faculty members routinely offer student opportunities for attendance to scientific/industry conferences, competitions, symposiums and more! As a result, our students can develop a professional network to assist them upon graduation.

The Department of Agriculture offers a variety of academic programs. Students can earn a two-year associates degree in Technical Agriculture and / or a four-year Bachelor’s Degree in Animal and Veterinary Sciences, or Agriculture with various concentrations. Learn more about our degree programs!
