Postgraduate coursework in Rural Development is no longer offered for new enrolments from Semester 2, 2016.

The program will develop theoretical and practical leadership, research and problem solving skills to meet the many 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.

Students will develop practical knowledge and skills to analyse, plan, implement and evaluate rural development, agricultural extension, community development and stakeholder engagement programs and activities.

It is an ideal program for 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.
