What will I learn?

The Bachelor of Agriculture will equip you with the agriculture knowledge, critical thinking and problem solving skills required to play important professional roles in improving productivity and sustainability of modern agriculture.

The agricultural industry is faced with new and emerging challenges creating a need for graduates who have practical experience, knowledge of cutting-edge technology and the leadership potential to help drive adoption of innovation at every stage of primary production. The Bachelor of Agriculture prepares you for the rigours of the ‘real’ world and ensures graduates are skilled to make a difference in the context of the emerging opportunities that a high tech agricultural industry provides.

The course delivers the right mix of skills-based training and research-led teaching to succeed in today’s agribusiness, livestock and cropping industries. Thanks to our partnership with local industry, such as Victoria’s Rural Industries Skills Training (RIST), you’ll benefit from project-based training on extensive crop, dairy, sheep, equine and beef production facilities. Graduates from RIST can apply for direct entry into the Bachelor of Agriculture.

The first year of the Bachelor of Agriculture will provide the foundation framework that you will use to develop increasingly complex learnings developed in the context of industry-relevant problems. In the second year, you will build your core skills by developing your systematic thinking by learning about emerging agricultural innovation through an industry placement. You will select to complete either a major in agribusiness or two out of three minors in livestock, cropping or business, during the course. In your third year, you will acquire information about agricultural practices and technology and develop advanced-level technical and people-management skills. You will complete the course by producing a real-world consulting project that will address a client-driven whole-of-system problem.

COURSE STRUCTURE
You are required to complete 16 core units and either an eight-unit major in agribusiness or choose two four-unit minors from either agribusiness, biotechnology, chemical analytics, environmental monitoring and management, food chemistry and nutrition, liberal studies, or sustainable landscapes.
