This programme is aimed at students who wish to pursue a career in agriculture and sustainable development in the private sector, research, NGO or government communities. It provides a firm grounding in research methods applicable to the study of sustainable agriculture and the intellectual tools for understanding sustainable agriculture systems. The courses combine theoretical approaches and empirically based learning from case studies of real projects and agricultural scenarios. Teaching will focus on case studies from NRI’s corporate experience of looking at how research into agricultural issues, both in the natural and social sciences, can be translated into knowledge and products that have a real impact on increasing the effectiveness of agriculture in delivering food security and enhancing livelihoods for all stakeholders. The potential role of agricultural innovations, both in technology, including biotechnology, knowledge systems, extension services and institutional partnerships in promoting development are also a strong theme in courses. The aims of the programme are: - To understand modern agricultural systems and the associated technologies of production together with their potential impacts on agriculture and livelihoods - To understand the social, institutional and economic context within which agriculture operates - To understand modern agriculture and its role in sustainable development. Course content: - Research Methods (15 credits) - Tools for Sustainable Agriculture (15 Credits) - Integrated Pest Management (30 credits) -...
