Program description

Why study the Bachelor of Agricultural Science (Honours). Go beyond the traditional growing of crops and animal production to take on a diverse and challenging career in Agricultural Science where you will use scientific, technological, management, economic, environmental and social principles to meet the world's need for food and fibres. UQ's Bachelor of Agricultural Science (Honours) offers you a broad range of courses covering topics from economics, biochemistry, microbiology, genetics, animal nutrition, land use and the environment, and agricultural development in Asia.

During this four year program you will gain an international experience through a 3 week placement in either Indonesia or Thailand where you will focus on the biophysical, economic and social aspects of small scale tropical production systems.

In the final two years you will undertake an independent research project where you will extend your specialization in either animal or plant science and build a successful career in the agricultural industries in research and development, production and management or service industries such as rural finance.
