About Agricultural Geography
Masters degrees in Agricultural Geography offer advanced study of the spatial relationship between agriculture and humans, including agricultural influences on populations and the environment.
Related subjects and specialisms in this field include Agroforestry, Rural Sustainability, Land Management, and Sustainable Agriculture. Entry requirements normally include an undergraduate degree in a relevant subject such as Geography or Agricultural Studies.
Courses in Agricultural and Rural Geography encourage you to investigate the cultural, political and environmental processes which govern the way we use land for agricultural purposes. This includes topics such as habitat management, crop production, and agricultural policy.
For example, you might explore issues such as the pressures of agronomy in particularly urbanised areas, or legislation surrounding land sparing and conservation in rural areas. Alternatively, you might undertake ecological research, analysing the effects of different land areas on plant physiology or human and animal health.
Careers in the field are highly varied and may include roles in agroforestry or international land management. You may also work on conservation projects for local government departments, environmental monitoring for agricultural agencies, or even on behalf of charities in developing countries.
