Students will study the theory and history of horticultural therapy. They will gain experience developing treatment plans and therapeutic activities for a variety of client populations and engage clients in therapeutic activities. They will learn about designing facilities for special populations and getting started in establishing and managing a horticultural therapy practice. The program can be completed in three consecutive semesters of part-time evening study.
The Horticultural Therapy Certificate, accredited by the American Horticultural Therapy Association, is also offered in an accelerated format.
