Climate change and population growth pose a huge, multifaceted, worldwide challenge to agricultural production. Food production needs to be increased in scale and efficiency, while at the same time animal welfare, the environment and natural resources need to be protected. A degree in agrobiology will equip you to play a part in finding solutions to these problems.
Sustainable production of animals and plants
Students choose one of three tracks:
- Animal Science
- Crop Nutrition and Health
- Organic Agriculture and Animal Science/Crop Science (single degree or double degree)
and tailor their degree with elective courses on top of the mandatory courses of their track. Finally the master’s thesis can be completed either in a university research context or a company R&D environment. The MSc in Agrobiology builds on solid, biological knowledge of sustainable animal and plant production, set in the perspectives of health, welfare, product quality, and environmental impact. Graduates will be well equipped to work with both producers and end-users in agricultural production, and to communicate effectively about their field in the public arena.
The following Bachelor’s degrees qualify students for admission to the Master’s degree programme in Agrobiology:
- A Bachelor of Science degree in Agrobiology from Aarhus University
- A Bachelor of Science degree from University of Copenhagen in Animal Science or Veterinary Science (to the specializations in Animal Science; Organic Agriculture and Animal Science; Double-degree in Animal Nutrition; Double-degree in Organic Agriculture and Food Systems).
- A Bachelor of Science degree in Naturressourcer from University of Copenhagen (to the specializations Crop Science; Organic Agriculture and Crop Science; Double-degree in Organic Agriculture and Food Systems).
- A Bachelor of Science degree in Biology containing a relevant topic profile in relevance to the specializations in Animal Science or Crop Science, as to Organic Agriculture and relevant Double Degree programmes.
The following other degrees can provide admission to the Master’s degree programme in Agrobiology:
- Another Bachelor of Science degree with subject components in Agrobiology equaling 60 ECTS, as well as basic subject components in Chemistry, Biochemistry, Cytology, Zoology, Botany, Mathematics, Statistics and Probability Theory.
- A professional bachelor degree with subject components equaling 60 ECTS hereof 40 ECTS in the relevant specialisation (respectively crop science and animal science) as well as subject components in Chemistry, Biochemistry, Cytology, Physiology, Mathematics, Probability Theory, Statistics and Philosophy of Science can provide admission to the Master’s degree programme.
Other qualifications can provide admission to the Master’s degree programme, provided the university assesses that their level, extent and content correspond to the degrees mentioned above.
Upon admission further requirements regarding composition of the degree programme may be stipulated.
