General

Program Description

The European MSc Agroecology is a European Master’s program coordinated by ISARA-Lyon and leading to a double degree between ISARA-Lyon and the Norwegian University of Life Sciences (NMBU).

The European MSc Agroecology is a two-year program (120 ECTS), professionally oriented, to study interactions among agricultural, food and environmental sciences in a socially oriented and action driven perspective.

The objective of the program is to prepare graduates to produce innovation in agroecology, to create and support sustainability in the farming and food systems.
The program provides the ecological principles to study, design and manage agroecosystems that are both productive and natural resource preserving, socially just and economically viable. It prepares students to link theory to practice and to cope with the complex situation at different scales by combining scientific learning with professional and practical experiences.

Agroecology is the interdisciplinary science that provides information, methods of analysis, evaluation and improvement to promote the development of secure and sustainable food systems.

Methods from natural and social sciences are integrated to deal with the complex challenges of meeting human food needs in a resource-efficient manner that is economically sound, environmentally benign and socially acceptable.
