What is an MSc in Sustainable Agriculture? It is the study of the challenges that face global food production. Students typically learn about satisfying the food and income requirements of farmers, protecting environmental quality and human health, providing people with a healthy and affordable diet, and contributing to the vitality of rural and urban communities. Programs cover topics such as socio-economics, marketing and policy development, environmental and water management, soil and crop management, animal production, health and welfare management, and food quality, safety and nutrition.

A sustainable agriculture degree usually equips graduates with the skills to network efficiently and effectively. Students also learn to work independently under time pressures. This helps them reach deadlines when they enter the job market. They may also become adept at problem-solving.

Master degree programs may differ from one university to the next. Along with location, the length of the program and courses offered may affect the overall price of tuition for a master’s degree in sustainable agriculture. For more detailed information, students should contact any school they are interested in.

Sustainable agriculture graduates tend to be well-suited for careers in agriculture and horticulture within international and national institutions, in international development and humanitarian assistant agencies, and in governmental and non-governmental organizations. Some students may find jobs with commercial companies, and most students are qualified for jobs in the food industry as researchers, advisors, managers, and policy developers.

Increasing concern over environmental, biodiversity, and food safety issues in the Mediterranean area have formed the basis for a Masters of Science (M.Sc.) degree in “Sustainable Agriculture”. Sustainable Agriculture promotes the principles of a viable agroecosystem with natural living systems that operate compatibly through responsible management of abiotic and biotic resources and it is particularly sensitive to environmental pollution and waste. The postgraduate program enables the graduates to tackle the recent incorporation of environmental issues into the EU common agricultural policy. The framework of integrated and organic farming systems is provided by the quality assurance legislation and agro-environmental indicators. Technical topics are also analysed in-depth: agro-ecology, ecotoxicology, agro-biodiversity, genetic resources management, soil and water management, crop protection, case studies of sustainable methodologies. -
