We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
A Masters in Agricultural Science develops expertise in the advanced research techniques that support modern farming and livestock management. You will explore current scientific theory and have the opportunity to research new techniques and practices.
Many of these courses are interdisciplinary, drawing on branches of Biology, Chemistry and other sciences. Most programmes will expect applicants to have an undergraduate degree in a related subject, or relevant experience.
This subject is ideal for postgraduates who wish to pursue advanced scientific knowledge with a practical focus. You’ll have the chance to study topics that address the significant challenges facing modern farming in an era of rising populations and growing environmental concern.
Careers for Agricultural Science postgraduates include obvious and not-so-obvious pathways. You might work with agribusiness firms and food production companies, providing new research and insights. Or you might contribute to measuring and improving the wider impact of agriculture on people and the environment. Opportunities also exist to inform important areas of government policy.
