The University of Melbourne has launched its new Bachelor of Agriculture degree, designed with industry experts to meet the high demand for agricultural scientists and prepare them for what is predicted to be a hugely productive century for Australian agriculture.
Features of the University of Melbourne’s new Bachelor of Agriculture:
– Specialisation from three majors:
– Animal Science
– Plant and Soil Science
Students from each of the three majors will develop their problem-solving and communication as they work in teams to develop solutions to issues facing the Australian agricultural sector. These will range from increasing animal productivity in a region to developing more sustainable farming methods.
Bachelor of Agriculture graduates who have majored in Animal Science and meet subject score requirements can also gain entry to the Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree.
An Honours year is available for eligible students, and graduates can also continue their studies with a Masters or PhD program.
