Program Description

Our World faces immense challenges; climate change, mass migration from the countryside to mega cities, food shortages, excess consumption, food waste and pollution. Through the sustainable cultivation of plants and an increase in plant-based diets, many of these challenges can be overcome. Plants provide the oxygen we breathe, the food we eat, our shelter and medicines.

This course covers the sciences, environmental studies, business, management and communication skills related to growing food and non-food plants. You will also study the science behind developing and maintaining Ireland’s designed landscapes, golf courses, tennis courts and sports pitches.

The objectives of this degree are to give you:

  • Knowledge of the growth, development and protection of plants, and use of plants for food, leisure, sports, social and environmental benefits.
  • An understanding of horticultural plant production systems and how their components are integrated and managed in an environmentally friendly and sustainable manner.
  • The skills to become a competent, competitive and confident leader who will excel in the national or global horticulture community as a professional horticulturist or horticultural scientist.
