Join the new world of agriculture

Elevate your career with the new Master of Agriculture.

If you are passionate about the primary industries, Massey University’s new Master of Agriculture will help you progress your career.

Join a world-leading agriculture university

Our proud record dates back to 1927 when we offered New Zealand’s first degrees in agriculture and horticulture.

Massey is world-ranked and New Zealand’s No 1 university in agriculture according to the QS (Quacquarelli Symonds) rankings. We are also ranked in the top 150 universities worldwide for agriculture by the ShanghaiRanking's Global Ranking of Academic Subjects.

As a student, you will benefit from our internationally recognised capability and leadership in this area.

What will you learn?

Your study will cover a wide range of topics including related environmental, consumer and policy issues in areas like:

  • agribusiness
  • extension and consultancy
  • animal science
  • management of primary systems
  • life cycle management
  • soil science
  • agricultural plants
  • plant health
  • equine

As well as subject-related skills, you will gain and/or improve your critical analysis, project management and communication skills. You will learn how to integrate science, new and emerging technologies and sustainable management to resolve issues relevant to the primary industries.

Subject specialisations

The Master of Agriculture may be endorsed in agriculture; horticulture; equine or life cycle management.

Complete in a shorter time-frame

The Master of Agriculture is one of the new 180-credit masters being offered by Massey University. The qualification can be completed full time in only three semesters, so if you are able to include the summer semester it may be possible to complete in one year. If you are working while you study, we offer the flexibility to complete over a longer period of time.

A unique project

Course work will include 120 credits of taught material. The remaining 60 credits are composed of a unique professionally-focused research project. This project will take place in the work force, helping you produce a relevant, industry-related piece of work that will be immediately useful to you and the industry upon completion.

Award-winning labs

Massey’s Manawatu campus hosts the only multi-function teaching laboratories in Australasia. The labs, built in 2010, won a Best Practice Award for Innovation at the Association for Tertiary Education Management conference in Australia and was shortlisted for the international UKS-Lab awards.

The facility is unique in Australasia in that it allows each laboratory to be tailored to accommodate a variety of disciplines. Technicians can do preparation in the dedicated technical area before moving this into the lab, which means students can spend more time doing lab practical work.

World-leading lecturers and industry-relevance

As a student of the Master of Agriculture you will have access to lecturers and supervisors acknowledged as being among the best in the world. Collaboration between Massey University and adjacent Crown Research Institutes offers unrivalled advantages to postgraduate students’ access to specialised skills, equipment and networking opportunities.

You will have access to a wide range of facilities and services including the Pasture and Crop Research Unit, the Fertiliser and Lime Research Unit, the Plant Growth Unit, The Equine Unit, the Life Cycle Management Centre, Massey University farms, teaching laboratories and Library resources.

Become a sought-after employee

Studying towards your masters is a satisfying and challenging process that will give you a sought-after postgraduate qualification.

For students with previous postgraduate qualifications, such as the BAgriScience (Hons), this is a one year programme based entirely on a research project and thesis. Otherwise you may choose the Master of Science (Agricultural Science) as a more in-depth research option.
