The core of this programme is biology, with perspectives on sustainability, environmental impact, animal health and welfare, plant health, and product quality. Students can choose between specialisations including animal nutrition, plant nutrition, animal health and welfare, plant health, and pest management, or combine animal and plant sciences. Because this is a cross-disciplinary master’s, students can also choose courses from other academic programmes.
Students will learn analytical and problem-solving skills, how to do research, and how to generate new knowledge. In this programme emphasis is placed as much on the academic and professional skills as on the applied skills.
