Lincoln University’s Master of Horticulture Science expands your opportunities with a programme involving both advanced training and research in the aspects of science relevant to the horticultural industry.
This is a 240-credit research degree requiring 120 credits of course work plus a 120 credit research thesis. During the programme, you can expect to focus on specific disciplines including Plant Science, Plant Protection, Viticulture and Oenology. The advanced instruction and research experience will make you ready for a wide range of career options in the horticultural industries.
You’re required to complete 240 credits. This is normally made up of 120 credits of taught courses (from the regulation schedules for the relevant Master’s degree) and a thesis worth 120 credits. Students enrolling in a thesis-only Master’s only need complete a minimum of 120 credits.
The first year’s study provides preliminary research preparation.
You’ll need to meet with your Research Supervisor to discuss and agree the courses required for your chosen speciality.
Typically your first year of study will consist of six courses chosen from disciplines such as Plant Science, Viticulture and Oenology, Plant Protection and Soil Science. Your second will cover conducting your experiments and writing your thesis.
