Masters degrees in Agriculture explore the understanding and management of farmland, forestry, fisheries and livestock. They focus on a wide range of specialist topics, from commerce and technology to sustainability and zoology.
These courses can be taught or research-based, with many drawing on existing undergraduate science qualifications. MBAs are also available in specific specialisms such as food production and agricultural management
Practical applications for degrees in this subject area are very diverse. Obvious career choices include agricultural food and resource production, but even here there are a range of options for professional specialisation. You might end up working for a global agribusiness firm, carrying out research in the Agricultural Sciences or developing a more specialised local farming business.
Agriculture postgraduates also develop skills and experience that are in demand with a wide range of other employers, from government planning and development departments to international conservation charities and lobbying groups.
