This study programme is only available in German.
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.
Applied Plant Sciences teach students a well-founded interdisciplinary knowledge about functions and strategies of use of agrarian ecosystems for a responsible and competent guarantee of the production of plant primary products and foodstuffs.
The master programme consists of compulsory subjects, compulsory focal subjects, elective subjects and elective subjects that can be chosen freely, and the master thesis; thus, if students wish, they can be very flexible in their choice of subjects. The only general compulsory subjects are the master seminar and an interdisciplinary excursion. To consolidate and enhance one’s knowledge numerous courses in the following elective modules are available: plant production and grassland-based agriculture, plant protection, plant breeding and plant biotechnology, horticulture, pomiculture and viticulture, garden tending and landscape gardening, agrology, agricultural engineering, methodological basics and tools.
