A Masters in Organic Agriculture is a highly varied and versatile degree. With a focus on crop production and distribution, you will explore sustainable and eco-friendly approaches to farming. You will also learn about the care and support of livestock and crops through specific techniques in land management, agronomy (soil analysis), and animal nutrition.
Training in quality assurance, industry standards, and government policy is also a key component of many programmes. Commercial aspects of the industry, such as marketing and financial planning, are also explored.
Careers in Organic Food Production and Agriculture include roles as farmers, growers, vets, quality assurance consultants, and advisors in government and environment agencies.
A Masters in Organic Farming could also lead to further research at PhD level.
