Content

The aim of the degree course is to develop your general and specialist knowledge, understanding, and skills in agriculture to allow you to aspire to a leadership role within the agricultural industry. This is a wide-ranging course, giving you an understanding of the entire food chain, from plough to plate. You will develop the ability to tackle problems by collecting, analysing and evaluating qualitative and quantitative information and using it to make sound decisions.

You will develop the knowledge and understanding required for a senior management position within the agricultural, agri-business or agri-food industries, in both a UK and global context. You will also acquire a good appreciation of the environmental, moral, ethical and legal issues relevant to the agricultural industry today, and an understanding of how agriculture inter-relates with society.
