Horticulture Program Overview

GreenhousesThe Horticulture program at Illinois Central College offers a Horticulture-Landscape Management Associate in Applied Science Degree and Horticulture-Turfgrass Management Associate in Applied Science Degree along with the Horticulture-Landscaping Certificate and Horticulture-Turfgrass Operations Certificate. Students may attend full-time or part-time. Graduates of the program either enter directly into the Horticulture industry or transfer to a four-year university to continue studies.

Identifying plantsStudents learn basic theory in the classroom and apply that theory in outdoor laboratories. The program has a variety of outdoor facilities and equipment to support student learning in these "hands-on" labs. Students in laboratories learn and practice production, construction, and maintenance of plants and features in the campus horticultural facilities.

GazeboStudents have the opportunity to participate in a variety of activities at ICC besides going to classes. The Horticulture Club sponsors a variety of trips and social functions each year. Students may participate in the Illinois Nurserymen's Association Apprenticeship Program, the Pro-Hort Seminars, and the Professional Landcare Network (PLANET) Student Career Days held each spring. In addition, students assist in hosting the College's Landscape & Garden Day held each fall at the Land Lab.
