A course taken at a college, university or technical school includes several classes that are in one field of study. Courses may last a few months, a year or longer. Many students take a course prior to or in addition to pursuing a college degree.

What is a course in floristry? A college course in the study of floristry provides students with an in-depth understanding of the way flowers grow, how to harvest and store them, and how to arrange cut flowers in bouquets that are pleasing to the eye. Classes may include floral design, with an emphasis on creating custom hand-tied arrangements, wedding bouquets and designs for memorials. Students may also learn the best methods of purchasing commercially available flowers and keeping them fresh. Skills important to operating a florist business are also taught. Assessments are usually practical, and portfolios may also be required.

By completing a course in floristry, an individual may have an increased chance of finding his or her dream job in floral design. Many graduates also choose to start their own business.

College courses vary in cost, depending on the length of the course and any books or material fees that are required. It is always wise to be sure that a course will meet one’s needs before enrolling in it.

In addition to becoming a floral designer, graduates of a course in floristry may find employment as flower wholesalers, interior landscapers for malls or corporate buildings, or florists-on-staff at major resorts and hotels. The florist industry attracts people who are capable of evoking emotion from the tasteful design and display of beautiful flowers. Because of this, florists who thrive are individuals who have a passion for people as well as flowers.

There are many schools worldwide which offer a course in floristry. While some classes may be offered online, the practical aspect of the field may require onsite coursework. To take the first step in starting your course, search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
