Oklahoma State University (OSU) was founded on December 25, 1890, as Oklahoma Agricultural and Mechanical College. Originally the single Department of Agriculture and Horticulture contained all offerings in agriculture except chemistry. In 1893, that entity was divided into the Department of Horticulture and the Department of Agriculture. Through the years and several changes the department was broadened to its current status as The Department of Horticulture and Landscape Architecture in 1982. 1

Just like then, we strive to provide expert instruction and guidance to our students. As a departmental student you will receive one-on-one advising from faculty members specialized in the areas of horticulture, landscape architecture, or landscape contracting. We provide opportunities for networking with future employers, studying abroad, and experiencing hands-on classroom techniques.
