Agriculture and Forestry Degrees

The study of agriculture and forestry is no longer limited to harvesting techniques and animal rearing. Today, graduates of an agriculture education are just as likely to work with sustainable development or environmental issues as with genetically modified crops and the prevention of pests and diseases. An agricultural degree will put you in the heart of some of the most important issues of today.

At SLU, you will make a difference to our natural environment.

Studying everything that grows – from animals and plants to microorganisms – SLU gives you the knowledge to sustainably utilise and protect landscapes, forests, animals, and soil.

agricultre and farming

A degree in the field of agriculture/ forestry today is much more than simple farming and extraction of timber. Agriculture degrees incorporate knowledge in a number of disciplines, including chemistry, environment studies, and biology in addition to aspects of food science, technology, economics and management. Agriculture education trains students to conduct detailed research, keep careful track of farming developments and understand professional agriculture codes of conduct.

The particular focus and combination of your agriculture education is largely up to you. There are countless combinations available at every level - from diploma courses and bachelor degrees up to PhD or Doctorates.

Studying agriculture/ forestry

A common division of programs in agriculture education lies between those with a more practical, vocational orientation and those which focuse more on the applied sciences. Choose your agriculture/ forestry education carefully, as the career options open to you upon graduation vary accordingly.

Agriculture degrees are available worldwide. Most institutions offering agriculture education programs are set in a rural location, often far from the lures of city life. This aspect of student life is definitely worth considering, as it will have a large impact on your experience at university, and you will be expected to spend plenty of time in fields, barns, or forests.

Careers in agriculture/ forestry

Careers in the field of agriculture/ forestry are often within farm, livestock, or forest management, research and advisory work. It is not uncommon for graduates to work with issues such as sustainable development, environmental effects, climate change, and disease epidemics as well as organic crops and land erosion.

If you are more interested in a sales- or marketing-oriented agricultural role, you may find opportunities within the agricultural product industry, working with the sales/ marketing of feed, fertilizer or forestry equipment. Another closely related field which attracts many agriculture/ forestry graduates is that of food sciences, where opportunities involve working as food technologists, scientists or product developers.

Agriculture/ forestry is a research-intensive field, with many opportunities for continued education and research beyond a bachelor or master degree. If this is what you are aiming for, it may be wise to consult your prospective school regarding such opportunities within agriculture/ forestry.
