There is a high demand today for individuals with experience and knowledge in how to provide sustainable growing options that are good for both the environment and for the humans who consume the products. Those interested in how the proper application of crop production may affect the globe may choose to pursue a master's degree in agronomy.
What is an MSc in Agronomy? A Master of Science in Agronomy provides graduates with a thorough knowledge and understanding of how agricultural productivity can improve food security and assist societies with the ability to streamline more efficient food production methodologies. Upon completion of an agronomy degree program, students should be able to apply what they have learned into real-world situations where the scientific principals surrounding agronomy are put into action. By combining research with in-depth instruction in climatology, genetics, biochemistry, physiology and plant breeding, students are prepared translate their studies into results.
Completing a master's degree in agronomy can directly benefit graduates by promoting the acquisition of useful skills in a wide range of careers. Most students learn the proper ways to communicate with the public, farmers and fellow scientists through a wide range of methods.
The cost of earning a master's degree varies depending on the chosen program. Tuition prices for different institutions may be obtained in order to help interested students determine where they would like to attend, either online or in person.
A graduate degree in agronomy provides students with a highly specialized education. Many industries are in need of employees with an understanding of how to improve sustainable agricultural practices. Some graduates begin careers with governmental agencies, while others focus on working with private companies. A master's degree may be able to give students better access to top-level positions with higher career prospects.
Completing a master's degree program at a brick-and-mortar campus is not possible for everyone, but there are many agronomy programs available online.

Objectives of the study program
The program - based on agricultural, economic, management and rural sociology studies – focuses primarily on the understanding of the current problems of sustainable development and rural regions, the cooperation in the possible directions of development, the preparation of actual development projects, as well as the management and monitoring of project implementation. The training also covers the questions of loss minimization after harvests, development, and management of local markets, as well as logistics management and warehousing.
The most special feature of the Rural Development Engineer course is the organization of frequent study trips. “Learning by Seeing” is stressed through the visits to different scales of farms, municipalities and rural development agencies and projects. The students can also experience the European identity during study tours to the European Union institutions in Brussels and to our partner universities in neighboring Slovakia and Romania. The wide range of management and rural development skills enable the graduates to pursue different careers and adapt their knowledge to different conditions in their home countries....

Goals of the education
The aim of the program is to train agricultural biotechnology engineers, who are competent in the field of biochemistry, microbiology, physiology, traditional and molecular genetics, transgenic breeding, reproduction biology and dissemination biology and familiar with the practical laboratory skills. The MSc program will equip them with theoretical knowledge, communication and management skills which, in turn, allow them to become efficient researchers, design engineers and leaders as well as to start their PhD course.
Length of the study program: 4 semesters
Total credit: 120
Undergraduate degree (B.Sc. or equivalent) in relevant field of science or related area (Degree qualifications are assessed individually in accordance with the diploma and its attachments, or with the Report of Study (Index)).
When the field of degree is not related to the chosen M.Sc. Program, credits of the relevant courses in the Report of Study (Index) will be acknowledged by the admission office.
Good command of English.

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....

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 combining 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, focusing on goals such as high crop yields, high animal welfare, and low environmental impact. Students also learn how agriculture systems and current methods of food production work. At Aarhus University organic agriculture is an integrated part of all courses, and therefore the programme for students specialising in organic agriculture also includes courses focused on farming in an organic setting....

MSc in Agrobiology
Food production in a challenging future
Developing solutions for healthy food production while decreasing environmental impact and increasing animal welfare is the main focus in 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 broadly science-based with a focus on applicability and problem-solving, and takes an integrative approach to learning about the biology behind food production.
Cross-sectional knowledge and approaches
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 a cross-disciplinary master’s, students can also choose courses from other academic programmes....

MSc in Agro-Environmental Management
Developing sustainable agroecosystems
Students in the Agro-Environmental Management programme are out to change the world. Rather than just making minor changes to existing production systems, these students are out to rethink the entire production cycle by optimising production goals as well as environmental targets. They seek to develop sustainable pathways for every level of food production, to use new technologies to comply with an increased regulation, and to eliminate waste from the entire production cycle. This approach is not about maximising production – it’s about balancing production with environmental concerns.
Courses provide a strong theoretical background in subjects such as the management of border systems and the workings of the nutrient cycle. In the second year, students will have the opportunity to apply this knowledge to their thesis project....
