About this program

MSc in Organic Agriculture and Food Systems

The MSc programme in Organic Agriculture and Food Systems (EUR-Organic) is a unique degree combining high-ranking research environments with state-of-the-art knowledge from industry leaders in organic food production. It prepares students to develop the solutions of tomorrow, focusing on goals such as high crop yields, high animal welfare, and low environmental impact. Students also learn how agriculture systems and current methods of food production work. At Aarhus University organic agriculture is an integrated part of all courses, and therefore the programme for students specialising in organic agriculture also includes courses focused on farming in an organic setting.

An International Double Degree

This programme is a collaboration between four leading European universities in the field of agriculture and life sciences (Aarhus University, the University of Hohenheim in Stuttgart, the University of Natural Resources and Life Science in Vienna, and the Warsaw University of Life Sciences).

Students spend one year at their chosen home university and one year at their chosen host university, and receive a degree from both institutions. Each university takes a different thematic approach to organic food production, with Aarhus University’s specialisms including organic agriculture with a focus on animal or plant production, health, and welfare/nutrition.
