DescriptionThe agrobiology programme at Aarhus University takes an integrative approach to learning about the biology behind food production. It is broadly science-based with a focus on applicability and problem-solving. Topics of study include genetics, biotechnology, production systems, and the interaction of agriculture with nature. Broadly, the programme focuses on training students in developing solutions for producing healthy foods while decreasing environmental impact and increasing animal welfare.
The core of this programme is biology, with perspectives on sustainability, environmental impact, animal health and welfare, plant health, and product quality. Students can choose between specialisations including animal nutrition, plant nutrition, animal health and welfare, and plant health and pest management, or they can combine animal and plant sciences. Because this is a cross-disciplinary master’s, students can also choose courses from other academic programmes in order to complement their specialisation.
Students will learn analytical and problem-solving skills as well as how to do research and generate new knowledge. As much emphasis is placed on the academic and professional skills as on the applied skills.
Career OpportunitiesMost students who complete this programme find employment with an advisory company in relation to primary production. Other careers for which graduates will be prepared include feed or supply, developing new plants, plant protection, teaching, and working with authorities to develop or enforce industry regulations.
AdmissionStudents must have a bachelor’s degree in life science such as plant, animal or veterinary science. Preference is given to those with an agriculture background. A basic knowledge of biochemistry, statistics, genetics, evolution, or animal nutrition is also beneficial for this programme.
This programme attracts students who like applied sciences, have an interest in farming and agriculture, and want to save the planet.
