Master programme Agricultural Crop Sciences

Contents and focus of the degree programme:

The degree programme focuses on the biology and function of cultivated plants. This area is dealt with in a very in-depth and extensive way; the programme contains everything from molecular biology and plant cultivation to the ecosystem and teaches the relevant agronomical and horticultural sciences methods. The education is science-oriented. The University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences focuses on plant production, horticulture, pomiculture and viticulture. An individual combination of the many different courses on offer is also possible and thus students are quite free in their choice of a specialisation.
