Program Description

MSc Agroecology - Organic Agriculture

ISARA Lyon

The MSc Agroecology-Organic Agriculture is jointly offered by ISARA-Lyon (France) and Wageningen University (The Netherlands). It is aimed at international students with a strong interest in sustainable agriculture and agroecosystem management.

Students will get the opportunity to understand structure and function of complex agroecosystems. They will learn to apply systems approaches in studying, designing and evaluating (agricultural) systems and food production chains, and to develop creative solutions for sustainable farming and marketing of organic products. The program teaches a multidisciplinary approach in which natural science is combined with social science and economics.

Action learning and action research through cooperation with farmers, food system professionals and consumers will shorten the distance between practice and theory. The Double Degree Program Agroecology - Organic Agriculture is designed as a two-year programme curriculum including a practical thesis project. The programme combines 4 semesters with semester 1 and 2 in Wageningen, the Netherlands, and semester 3 at ISARA (member of FESIA) in Lyon, France. The master thesis (semester 4) will be carried out under the major responsibility of one of two partners, and will be co-supervised by the other partner.
