Description

The MSc programme in Organic Agriculture and Food Systems (EUR-Organic) is a unique degree combining high-ranking research environ­ments with state-of-the-art knowledge from industry leaders in organic food production. It prepares students to develop the solutions of tomor­row, focusing on goals such as high crop yields, high animal welfare, and low environmental impact. Students also learn how agriculture systems and current methods of food production work. At Aarhus University organic agriculture is an integrated part of all courses, and therefore the programme for students specialising in organic agriculture also includes courses focused on farming in an organic setting.

Career Opportunities  

Graduates can choose from a wide range of careers in supporting organic farming development. Recent graduates have worked in research and in primary production with authorities and advisory services.

About the Degree

This programme is a collaboration between four leading European universities in the field of agriculture and life sciences (Aarhus University, University of Hohenheim in Stuttgart, University of Natural Resources and Life Science in Vienna, and Warsaw University of Life Sciences).

Students spend one year at their chosen home university and one year at their chosen host university, and receive degrees from both institutions. Each university takes a different thematic approach to organic food production, with Aarhus University’s specialisms including organic agriculture with a focus on animal or plant production, health, and welfare/nutrition.

For detailed information on the different universities’ specialisms, visit www.eur-organic.eu.

Denmark is a world leader in organic food production, which provides the ideal setting for specialising in this field. The Danish government was one of the first to prioritise organic production, and an increasingly high percentage of food produced in Denmark today is organic.  

This programme gives students an international profile, network, and perspective. Students will be exposed to differing parameters in different countries and agriculture systems around the world, and they will learn from their peers’ different ways of approaching a problem – a perfect preparation for a future career in an increasingly globalised industry.

Agricultural sciences at Aarhus University rank ninth worldwide in the 2017 US News Best Global Universities ranking, and tenth in the 2016 National Taiwan University ranking. Agriculture and Forestry at AU are ranked between 51 and 100 in the QS World University Rankings by Subject 2017.
