Our Citrus and Horticultural Science program offered by  Florida Southern College—the only one of its kind in the country—provides the perfect combination of hands-on experiences (both on campus and off) and broad-based education, as well as the industry connections, you need to excel.


The Citrus and Horticultural Science major leads to a Bachelor of Science degree. The major provides a strong science-based curriculum with opportunities to specialize in four separate concentrations. 

Students satisfy core requirements and fulfill the coursework required for one or more areas of concentration: Citrus, Pre-Graduate Studies, Biotechnology, or Business. Professional internships, research opportunities, and other forms of experiential learning prepare students for exciting, challenging careers or for continuing their education through graduate studies.
