Agronomy degrees abroad

Agronomy is the scientific study of crop production and soil management. It’s a multidisciplinary field that draws on topics from biology, agribusiness, chemistry, and more.

As an agronomy student, you’ll learn how to sustainably produce crops for food and fuel. You’ll examine the influence of genetics, nutrition, and soil composition on crop yield and quality, and develop a solid understanding of the agricultural industry.

Studying abroad is an incredible opportunity to expand your knowledge and expertise in agronomy. As well as encountering new landscapes, climates, and plants, you’ll appreciate the issues and challenges faced by agriculturalists across the globe.

Agronomy program structure

Bachelor’s degrees in agronomy last a minimum of three years. However, most programs give you the option to complete a work placement. If you choose to take a sandwich year, your degree will be extended by 12 months.

As the world’s largest agricultural producer, the US is a popular study abroad destination for agronomy students. In the US, undergraduate degrees require four years of study. You’ll take two years of general education classes before majoring in agronomy for the final half of your program.

It’s possible to study agronomy as a postgraduate program too. Master’s degrees take between one and two years, while PhDs can take up to six years to finish.

You’ll benefit from a variety of teaching methods, including lectures, laboratory workshops, seminars, and field trips. You’ll be assessed through a combination of essays, exams, practical assessments, presentations, and fieldwork.

The content of your program will depend on the modules you select and the university you attend. But here are some core topics you’ll probably cover:

  • Agribusiness economics and management
  • Environment and land resources
  • Crop pests
  • Agronomy supply chains
  • Trends in agricultural markets
  • Principles of agronomy and crop improvement
  • Managing soils in the agri-environment
  • Sustainable production systems
