The Master of Agricultural Sciences provides a research-led national and international focused program, providing students with knowledge of the fundamental and applied science of agriculture needed to solve critical global issues around sustainability and food supply using science, technology and business.
The course combines a strong core of agricultural science knowledge with the opportunity for students to focus their learning via selection of one of five Specialisations: Agribusiness, Animal Science, Crop & Soil Sciences, Food Sustainability or Agricultural Extension & Innovation.
Students will complete either a research project or internship, as well as build on their base knowledge through a range of elective subjects covering a variety of areas such as: animal and plant production; management of disease and pest incursions; advanced breeding; the economic aspects of agriculture; and spatial information capabilities.
Graduates will possess attributes that prepare them to find employment in the public or private sectors related to a wide range of agricultural production, environmental, economic, bioresearch service industries, and community organisations concerned with public good.
