Conventional, intensive agricultural approaches have left in their wake a growing number of serious environmental issues, degrading soils and reducing landscape water holding capacity. Looking to the future of food production demands that we rethink our approach to farming systems.
The Graduate Certificate in Regenerative Agriculture is designed for students who want to be a part of a new way of farming that better supports, and is supported by natural processes, building more resilient farms and farmers in a future of increased seasonal and weather variability.
This course is ideal for students from multi-disciplinary, science, agricultural and business backgrounds to gain postgraduate qualifications in the field of regenerative agriculture.
Drawing on the University's specialist expertise in plant science, agronomy, ecology, agroforestry, environmental chemistry and socio-ecological systems, the course offers a choice of units covering the theory and practice of regenerative agriculture.
Students complete two core units and two elective units.
Elective units (choice of two)
Responding to consumer demand and a desire to build more resilient farming systems, farmers need regenerative agronomists and consultants to provide advice and guidance. Graduates will have the practical skills to apply in a range of public and private sectors, including on farms, with agronomic consulting companies, landcare programs, research, education, interpretation programs and government departments such as Local Land Services and the Department of Primary Industries.
To be eligible to receive the Graduate Certificate in Regenerative Agriculture students must complete the equivalent of 4 units (48 credit points), comprising 2 core units and 2 elective units, with no more than one unit at introductory level.
