The Graduate Diploma of Urban Horticulture is nested within the Master of Urban Horticulture (Coursework). It is designed to fulfil the needs and demands of those who have qualifications in disciplines other than horticulture and who wish to emphasise the study of the horticultural system from a technological, sociological and management perspective. There is a focus on the design, implementation and management of urban landscapes. Employment opportunities can be found in a variety of settings including arboricultural services and tree management, urban parks and public open space, revegetation and restoration, residential landscape design, landscape and asset management, landscape construction and services.
The course provides excellent linkages and contacts to the urban horticulture industry, adding to the currency and relevancy of the study experience, but also building employment opportunities for the future.
The course can be completed as a pathway into, or an exit point from, the Master of Urban Horticulture program.
