Postgraduate coursework in Agricultural Science

The postgraduate coursework programs in Agricultural Science covers the integrative disciplines within the animal, plant, soil, food and social sciences continuum.

Students are able to select from one of three specialised fields of study to gain comprehensive theoretical and practical knowledge:

  • Agronomy
  • Horticulture
  • Plant Protection.

Graduates learn to apply leadership, research and problem solving skills to meet the global challenges associated with feeding the world, and maintaining our environment in situations of increasing community expectations of animal welfare, biosecurity concerns, and competition for limited resources. They will also analyse critically, evaluate and transform information within the discipline or field, analyse, generate and transmit solutions to complex problems and be able to communicate with professional and non-professionals audiences.

It is an ideal program for graduates and professionals seeking to expand their career prospects into a wide range of government, commercial, community based or research roles in the broad field of agriculture and environment.
