A Master of Science is usually a one- or two-year degree program allowing students to intensely focus on an area of study. Students may engage in field work, laboratory experiments, or original research projects in addition to classroom learning. Some master’s degree programs require a master’s thesis before the degree is conferred.

What is an MSc in Agricultural Science? It is a course of study that usually provides a general knowledge base in plant and pest management, environmental science, food safety, education, and leadership. A master’s degree in agricultural science can often be either a general survey of agricultural topics or be tailored to a student’s particular interest. Students may be able to specialize further with courses in advanced topics such as biosecurity and biotechnology. Agricultural science degrees are highly interdisciplinary and customizable, reflecting the complex and changing needs of modern agriculture.

The degree usually provides students with the knowledge needed to advance their agricultural or educational career in their subspecialty. Gaining a master's often improves job prospects by opening up new positions or opportunities for promotion.

The price of tuition for a master’s degree program in agricultural science can be quite different depending on the location of the school and whether or not the program includes online courses. Prospective students should do their research thoroughly before choosing a program.

A student with a master’s degree in agricultural science could work in an academic, industrial or government research position, focusing on anything from horticulture to soil science to food technology. They may also find employment in the agriculture industry as a farmer or entrepreneur. Other options include working as an educator or taking a political position related to agricultural concerns.

With so many degree programs available, the search process can seem overwhelming, but it doesn’t have to be. To begin researching the ideal program for your needs, search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
