Structure + Content
Over one billion people work in agriculture today, and the challenges facing them have never been greater. They must meet growing demand for agricultural products on less land and with less water, all while managing social, economic and climate-related issues. There is a great need for well-educated experts and innovative solutions in this exciting field. Our MSc in Agricultural Science equips you with the knowledge and skills you will need.
During the MSc programme in Agricultural Science, you will gain comprehensive knowledge and become a top specialist in your selected area of special expertise.
You will develop the ability to delve quickly and independently into unfamiliar areas, then implement your new knowledge in practice.
You will master a broad spectrum of methodological and leadership skills and learn to manage complex projects competently.
You will become adept at making scientific contributions in multidisciplinary teams.
You will take interdisciplinary foundation modules such as Innovation and Project Management. These core-competence modules are offered to all students on all MSc in Life Sciences programmes. You will also take modules focussing on key skills in agricultural science. From a range of specialisation-specific modules, you choose those modules that will best help you to hone your specialist knowledge and develop your interests in current and exciting subject areas.
At the heart of your studies will be your master’s thesis. The master’s thesis is generally embedded within a BFH-HAFL project, but may also be conducted with an external partner, such as your employer.
