Horticulture is a diverse industry which encompasses all things green. From greenhouses, home landscaping and floral shops to football fields, golf courses, forests and city byways, the horticulture industry offers a variety of opportunities. Coffeyville Community College prepares students for this industry with courses in greenhouse and nursery management, landscaping, plant propagation, biotechnology and much more. Off campus tours provide students with the opportunity to better acquaint themselves with the world of horticulture.
Coffeyville Community College horticulture students study in an environment that includes a 3.500 square foot greenhouse located on the main campus. Students will also gain hands-on practical experience as they transform the campus landscaping and complete projects around the community.
Demand for employees trained in the plant sciences is growing, especially for landscape designers, nursery production, garden center managers, crop farm and orchard managers, golf course and athletic field managers, technical representatives for agricultural service companies, ecological restoration specialists and horticulture therapists.
