The Bachelor of Agriculture provides students with a sound understanding of the structure and operation of agricultural production industries of Australia, as well as an understanding of Australia’s role in global food and fibre production.

Students will develop an understanding of fundamental scientific concepts, and will learn to apply this understanding to a range of agricultural contexts, including precision farming.

Through core studies at each year level, students will develop an integrated and multidisciplinary understanding of agricultural science, and of the social, political, and economic drivers of resource management, agricultural development and sustainability.

At the same time, depth of understanding in a chosen major in Plant and Soil Science, Production Animal Science or Agricultural Economics, will equip students with the knowledge, skills and aptitudes required to assess and improve performance in agricultural industries, to ensure long term sustainability, and to contribute as leaders in agricultural industries and communities.

Students will be involved in study at both the Dookie and Parkville campuses (with the option of a full time program of study at the Dookie campus in Semester 2 of second year). Students will also have an opportunity to undertake extra-mural vacation industry placements.
