We have 15 Masters Degrees in Agricultural Microbiology

Masters degrees in Agricultural Microbiology focus specifically on micro-organisms such as bacteria, viruses, and fungi, and how they affect the cell structure of larger organisms such as plants and livestock. Issues such as pathology and immunology are also explored, in relation to their impact on agricultural practises.

Degrees in this area are mostly laboratory-based MSc courses, though research-based MRes and MPhil courses are also available at some institutions. Entry requirements may include a relevant undergraduate degree (in an Agriculture, or Biology subject).

Why study a Masters in Agricultural Microbiology?

Postgraduate study of Microbiological Agriculture encourages you to explore issues such as: diagnosing, treating and preventing disease in plants and livestock; the beneficial use of microbes in soil and pesticide to increase crop health; the benefits of introducing microbes to food to improve human health, such as probiotics in dairy products, yeast in bread, and so on.

Agricultural microbiologists undertake very varied roles, from research positions within governing bodies and agencies, to quality control roles monitoring the manufacturing processes of products such as medicines and food.

Your understanding of microbiology could also be used in further PhD research. Important topics include the role of microbes in the environmental impact of agricultural and in climate change analysis.
