Seminar Series

The Seminar Series supports Horticulture's graduate research program. Graduate students fill much of the schedule with research proposals and exit seminars. The Horticulture Seminar Committee and Hortiuclture Graduate Student Association (HGSA) strive to support professional development with academic and industry guest speakers as well.

UGA faculty, students, staff and their guests are welcome to join each week. Zoom links are provided through the weekly seminar distribution lists. For security purposes, zoom information is not provided to non-UGA individuals without a professional or personal connection.
