You can buy your books at the UD Barnes and Noble on Main Street or at any of the bookstores in downtown Newark. You can also pre-order your books online and have them shipped to you. The online ordering process lets you rent some textbooks and choose used copies of others if you prefer, which can cut down on your costs.
If you are planning to take a course at another school over the summer, be sure to check the Transfer Credit Matrix to confirm that the class is accepted for credit at UD. You will need to complete and submit the prior to completing the course.
Horticulture is the science and art of growing plants; it also includes plant conservation, landscape restoration, soil management, landscape and garden design, construction, and maintenance, and arboriculture. Horticulturists apply their knowledge, skills, and technologies used to grow intensively produced plants for human food and non-food uses and for personal or social needs. They work as gardeners, growers, designers, and technical advisors. To learn more about the LHD major, visit the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources.
