The Horticultural Therapy Institute’s Curriculum

Educational options that work

An emphasis on horticultural therapy education enables the Institute to focus resources and effectively respond to change.

The curriculum:

  • Includes four courses
      Fundamentals of Horticultural Therapy
      Horticultural Therapy Techniques
    1. Horticultural Therapy Programming
      Horticultural Therapy Management
  • Offers new course content
  • Moves students through the program at an accelerated pace
  • Makes it possible to complete a certificate in one year
  • Meets in four face-to-face sessions (reduced from five sessions in the past)
  • Saves travel costs, without raising overall tuition
  • Incorporates more distance experiences


Why did the curriculum change?

Our students have asked for less travel and the ability to finish in a shorter period of time. It also allows us to refresh what and how we teach to better prepare students for HT practice.

Does the new curriculum meet the professional registration requirements of the American Horticultural Therapy Association?

Yes, the four courses total 9 credits and include the topics required for horticultural therapy coursework.

I have taken classes in the past from HTI. Can I still complete a certificate?

Yes! Please contact us for guidance in which classes to enroll, as some content has shifted from course to course.
