Hello Ruhani, how's everything going?

As a branch of plant agriculture, horticulture now seems like a good deal. In recent years students are targeting the USA for master's and bachelor degrees. Bachelors are as good as masters in the USA, especially for healthcare and agriculture courses.

If you are looking for the best universities for bachelor's, know that a good horticulture institute for a master's is not necessarily good for a bachelor. Because masters are often specialized. For a BSc in horticulture, I actually have some interesting suggestions. Once I was targeting the field myself and came to know some good universities abroad for it. Here take a look at these:

1. Purdue University - College of Agriculture
2. University of Massachusetts, Amherst
3. Murray State University - Houston School of Agriculture
4. Brigham Young  University - IDAHO

There were some other options as well, but these are the best and most affordable. I would personally recommend Purdue over any other. They offer a soil and water science program. It is an environmental science degree and very applicable for horticulture. And if you wonder, what's more, the GPA you need for the course is at 2.5 which is easily achievable.

IDAHO is your option if you are interested in agronomy. And Houston is best for a dedicated horticulture study. They offer a BSc Agriculture Horticulture course which is very good for a further career like a job and network.

I would suggest you evaluate your needs and interests to set a course for horticulture. The agricultural field is very big and if you start looking for all options, you will be swamped. Let me know if you have some specifics in mind and I shall try to give you more relevant information.
