Abstract
In general, students desiring graduate degrees in horticulture have few options other than main campus based programs. An extended-campus Master of Science degree program in horticulture, based at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University's (Virginia Tech) Hampton Roads Agricultural Research and Extension Center in Virginia Beach, offers an alternative to students 300 miles (482.8 km) away from Virginia Tech's main campus in Blacksburg. Existing facilities and a pool of six extended campus faculty are used to offer a nonthesis degree to locally employed horticulturists, or to students desiring a career change.
