Horticulture is the science and art of cultivation, propagation, marketing, and processing of ornamental plants, flowers, vegetables, fruits, and nuts. Horticulture is unique among plant sciences because it also incorporates art and the principles of design.
Begin your college career in the horticulture field at a small, friendly school that emphasizes academic excellence and also provides counseling, tutoring along with other support to help you succeed. You will have small class sizes, personal attention, and low tuition that could save you thousands of dollars on your education while taking classes that can transfer to another college or university. More and more students are discovering the best place to begin a bachelor's degree is at a 2 year institution.
As you prepare to eventually transfer to the college or university of your choice to complete your education within the horticulture major, students are highly encouraged to meet with an advisor from both LSUE and their intended university to ensure efficiency and course relevance for any particular program and degree.

Students in a transfer curriculum will receive a degree from the transfer institution once they complete all requirements at the future institution.
