Developing solutions for healthy food production while decreasing environmental impact and increasing animal welfare is the main focus of the Agrobiology programme at Aarhus University. Topics of study are genetics, biotechnology, production systems, and the interaction of agriculture with nature, among others. The programme is broad science-based with a focus on applicability and problem-solving and takes an integrative approach to learn about the biology of food production.

A CROSS-SECTORAL APPROACH

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, plant health, and pest management, or combine animal and plant sciences. Because this is across-disciplinary education, students can also choose courses from other academic programmes. Students will learn analytical and problem-solving skills, how to do research, and how to generate new knowledge. In this programme, emphasis is placed as much on academic and professional skills as on applied skills.

AN INTERNATIONAL LEARNING ENVIRONMENT

International students make up roughly one-third of each class, providing students with international knowledge and perspectives and the possibility to learn about different academic and agricultural environments.. Because agriculture industries and environmental impacts are international, it is natural to include different national perspectives in discussions about these topics. Denmark is an ideal place to study agriculture because of its huge food production industry, extensive agricultural research, and strict environmental regulations. International students gain the chance to learn from leaders in sustainable food production, and Danish students can learn about conditions outside Denmark.
