Do you like gardens and plants? A career in horticulture may be for you. As a new grad you could work in many industries and in a variety of occupations. A few options to consider include:

  • Landscape architecture: Design exterior spaces for function and beauty
  • Research technician: Research plants to learn more about them and their uses in other fields
  • Greenhouse manager: Care for and breed plants in a greenhouse
  • Floral designer: Design floral arrangements
  • Plant science educator: Plan and teach science lessons
  • Botanical gardener: Maintain a variety of plants at a local botanical garden

Most of these opportunities require a bachelor’s degree with a life science background. If you’re interested in research or post-secondary teaching positions, you’ll need to get a master’s or doctorate degree.
