What will I learn?

Agricultural production is critical to feeding the world’s population. Our four-year Bachelor of Agricultural Science (Honours) addresses the demands for farmers and primary producers to meet the requirements of international markets, including the European Union’s expectation for food to be traceable from ‘paddock to plate’.

Lincoln University has played a fundamental role in training managers, researchers, consultants and employees within the agricultural sector for more than 130 years. Our graduates have a reputation for ‘hitting the ground running’ because our qualifications are applied and relevant. Real world examples are integrated into the teaching programmes through case studies, field trips and tours. Students must also do a period of industry-based work experience as a requirement of the agriculture programmes. There are also options for starting in summer semesters.
