We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Masters degrees in Agricultural Chemistry encourage postgraduates to employ advanced techniques to explore the relationship between anatomical processes in plant and animal matter, and wider agricultural procedures.
Entry requirements normally include an undergraduate degree in a relevant field such as Chemistry or Environmental Sciences.
Agricultural Chemistry offers a range of specialisms, such as developing chemical compounds for pest control in relation to crops, or exploring mechanisms for agricultural machinery and technology through utilisation of bioenergy. Agricultural chemists also test compounds for negative or positive effects on plants, livestock, and humans.
Careers in this field include employment in government or private food agencies, consultancy in food management firms, or research positions in conservation and wildlife programmes.
If research is suited to your interests, you may even wish to progress to further study at PhD level, branching into fields such as environmental science or chemical technology.
