MSc in Organic Agriculture and Food Systems

AGROBIOLOGY DOUBLE DEGREE

The MSc programme in Organic Agriculture and Food Systems (EUR-Organic) is a unique degree that combines 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. Students will focus on goals such as high crop yields, high animal welfare, and low environmental impact. They will learn how agriculture systems and current methods of food production work. They will focus on developing intelligent solutions to problems.

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

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

AN IDEAL STUDY ENVIRONMENT

Denmark is a world leader in organic food production. Its 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. They will learn from their peers’ different ways of approaching a problem – very important in an increasingly globalised industry.

CAREER PROFILE

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

ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS

Admission to the double degree version in Agrobiology at Aarhus University requires a bachelor’s degree in agricultural, biological or environmental sciences. Detailed admissions requirements and more information about the programme are available at www.eur-organic.eu.
