Contents of the programme
There is a holistic and transdisciplinary approach to ecological, economic and social issues in farming and food systems.
The focus is on agroecosystems, on holistic methodology for their study, evaluation and improvement, on attitudes, ethics and values, and on individual and groupbased learning. Learning is based on exploring real-life farm and food systems cases.
The casework experience is supported by lectures, seminars and supervision, and the goal is to develop competency for responsible action by linking theory and practice.
The programme prepares students for a wide range of positions concerning conventional and organic agriculture and food systems, including advisory services and extension, development projects, management of agricultural and natural resources, environmental protection, and further education and research.
