We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Masters degrees in Agricultural Biology focus on the relationship between the biological properties of crops and livestock, and their use in - and impact on - agricultural processes, particularly farming.
Specialisms related to this subject include branches of Plant Science, Horticulture, Animal Sciences and Crop Production. Entry requirements normally include an undergraduate degree in a relevant field, such as Biology or Animal and Plant Science.
Postgraduate study of Agricultural Biology is highly diverse. You can opt to specialise in topics such as functional food and the production of medicinal plants, pest control, pathology, and the integration of beneficial insects to crops and farmland.
Pharmacology and cosmetic industries rely heavily on this research, as animal and plant derivatives are used in many of the day-to-day products which we use and consume alongside food.
Careers in this field include positions as applied research scientists for governing bodies and food agencies, consultants for businesses and farmers, or roles as food production managers.
These Masters degrees also make excellent preparation for further PhD research, particularly in toxicology and entomology.
