Urban Horticulture is the science enabling people/plant interactions that improve and enhance daily life by providing green spaces, such as parks and gardens, sporting fields, green walls and roofs, which reduce stormwater runoff and the urban heat island effect. The Urban Horticulture major is for students seeking a career involving the design, implementation and management of urban landscapes.

Students will gain a diverse scientific knowledge of all aspects relating to the production, cultivation, care and management of horticultural systems within our cities, and will acquire the skills to design and implement innovative new projects to improve our urban lifestyle and sustainability.
