Horticultural Science (Master of Science)

The international Master's program Horticultural Science trains experts in the breeding and production of horticultural crops, addressing one of the key challenges of our time: guaranteeing the quality and quantity of food for the human population worldwide, while simultaneously protecting ecological, economic and social resources. The program covers the entire field of horticultural production. Theoretical lectures are supplemented to a large extent by practical modules. The research-oriented teaching strengthens your bioscientific methodological competences and prepares you for national and international research and development positions in the field of plant science. The international Master's program in Horticultural Science is carried out by a teaching and research consortium of six European universities with location-specific research and teaching skills. Thanks to this cooperation students can develop an individual competence profile during their studies.
