Program content

What does this program cover?

The interdisciplinary bachelor's program in Agricultural and Horticultural Sciences is devoted to processes of plant and animal production, and associated fundamentals relating to the natural sciences, economics, and ecology. These play a role in both agrarian and horticultural value-added chains. Of central importance here is the production of high quality food and feed products, ornamental plants, and biogenic raw materials. The purpose is to exploit the substance and energy that these products contain, in the context of a sustainable and multi-functional agricultural and horticultural sector. The preservation of natural resources is also an important factor in this context.

The bachelor program offers students content that gives equal coverage to basic knowledge of the natural sciences, engineering, and economics, as well as of discipline-specific matters. In accordance with their individual interests, students can choose whether to specialize in agricultural sciences or in horticultural sciences. Depending on their choices, the discipline-specific modules incorporate content from

  • soil science and site feasibility,
  • causal relations in agricultural ecosystems as regards material and energy flows,
  • methods of plant cultivation and precision agriculture,
