As a non-thesis program, the Master of Horticultural Science at North Carolina State University substitutes additional coursework in lieu of the research and thesis required by other programs. Students work with a graduate committee to determine a plan of coursework, which provides additional flexibility and allows students to tailor their degree to their area of interest. This degree is ideal for individuals who do not plan on pursuing a PhD.
