Plant Science and Aquaculture


A degree in Plant Science and Aquaculture can train you to bring state-of-the-art technology together with knowledge of our environment to help harvest the bounties of the Earth. Or you can apply those same skills to protect and preserve our planet.

As a home to tens of thousands of commercial farms and a leading center in the science of aquaculture – the farming of sea life – Florida will provide you with ample opportunity to put those skills to work. In addition, Florida is also home to a unique and complex ecological system.

Career paths include:

  • Botanist
  • Horticulturist
  • Nursery Manager
  • Landscaping Engineer
