The Floral Design Certificate Program at NYBG offers the most in-depth training in the region, covering every aspect of this creative art. We'll help you develop your own aesthetic, master the mechanics for any arrangement, and gain practical business skills, so you graduate client-ready.

In just five weeks, you can complete all classroom credits toward the NYBG Certificate, so you can get started on your internship requirement ASAP. Working one-on-one with floral design professionals, you'll create dozens of arrangements in diverse styles for many different occasions. This concentrated program focuses on real-world situations, and includes a trip to New York's flower district. Let this be the summer you jump-start your career in Floral Design!
