Kwantlen Polytechnic University School Of Horticulture
The Kwantlen Polytechnic University School of Horticulture is located at the Langley Campus, in Langley, BC.
People, plants, place.
We use plants in specific places for specific purposes. Understanding community interest and personal preference, the limitations of site (soil, micro-climate…) and the requirements and characteristics of plants all contribute to the sustainable, successful practice of horticulture including turf management.
Learning, thinking, doing.
Kwantlen's turf management program combines an excellent foundation in horticulture with the core knowledge, skills, and abilities outlined in the national occupational standard for golf course superintendents. Students combine learning and doing at the start of their programs and critically apply knowledge to practice as their programs develop.
A job, a career, a life.
Our programs prepare students for jobs. The success of our graduates demonstrates the value of a Kwantlen horticulture program to a successful career. The contribution of our students and graduates to community and industry enriches our lives.
Kwantlen offers a 2 year diploma in turf management (or landscape design or production horticulture) and 4 year bachelor degrees in plant health and urban ecosystems. Diploma graduates may opt to continue their education with a horticulture degree or a degree in Business Administration from Kwantlen.
