From 2008 the Bachelor of Agriculture course has been redesigned. The majority of first and second year subjects will be undertaken at the Parkville campus while 3rd year studies are completed in flexible delivery mode at the Dookie Campus. In first year students will undertake two subjects at the Dookie campus while one second year subject will be undertaken at Dookie. These subjects will require attendance at a residential block which will take place outside the scheduled teaching weeks.

Agriculture is essentially the study of the management of resources for the sustainable production of food and fibre. When you study agriculture you are taught the principles and applications of science, economics and management, animal production, agribusiness, catchment management and various multidisciplinary packages such as systems analysis and management.
