The Master of Agricultural Science is designed for recent graduates in any field, those with a Graduate Certificate in Agricultural Science, and for established professionals wanting to upgrade their skills.
For your two years of full-time studies, you'll select from nearly 40 courses, including those within one of three specialised fields - Agronomy, Horticulture or Plant Protection - allowing you to tailor your studies to suit your interests and career goals.
You may also choose to undertake an independent research project to increase your technical and research skills working alongside some of the university's leading academics and researchers or in an industry setting.
Graduates demonstrate the ability to apply leadership, research and problem-solving skills to meet the global challenges associated with feeding the world, and maintaining our environment in situations of increasing community expectations of animal welfare, biosecurity concerns, and competition for limited resources. This greatly expands your career prospects into a wide range of government, commercial, community or research-based roles.
Postgraduate study can take you anywhere. Depending on which field you choose, here are some of the careers you could be on your way to:
