2011-2012 CCBC College Catalog
Associate of Applied Science (A.A.S.)
*A new college orientation requirement, completion of the one-credit ACDV 101 course, Transitioning to College, went into effect spring 2010. If you are a credit student who is new to college (meaning you have not successfully completed college coursework at another institution(s)), you are required to take ACDV 101 during your first semester at CCBC, thereby increasing the number of credits required for the degree to 68 credits. Students are required to provide an official transcript(s) to document successful completion of college coursework at another institution(s) in order for this requirement to be waived.
This program is designed to prepare individuals to enter the growing and popular field of ornamental horticulture as a horticulture specialist. Students will gain a thorough knowledge and practical experience in three areas of ornamental horticulture: landscape design, installation and maintenance; turf and grounds maintenance; nursery and/or greenhouse production, or floral design.
Upon successful completion of this program, students will be able to:
Identify pests that infest and inhibit healthy growth of turf and ornamental plants and specify appropriate IPM (Integrated Pest Management) methods to control such pests.
Maintain ornamental plants in the residential/commercial environment using techniques such as pruning, trimming, planting, and transplanting.
Identify various trees, shrubs, and perennials used in garden installations, using both the common and botanical names, and the cultural requirements for each plant.
Create a landscape design using the principles of design and a variety of graphic skills.
