This degree gives you a broad overview of agriculture and offers modules across our three specialist areas:
Agriculture is at the centre of many of the challenges facing modern society - including climate change, food security and increasing world population - and is a diverse area of study.
You will enjoy a rich curriculum including a broad range of topics from biology, soil science, nutrition, management, accounting and law.
Study at a UK leading university for agriculture and benefit from fantastic facilities, including two University farms.
The first and second years are the same for students on all four of our agriculture degrees.
Our flexible degree structure means it is possible to transfer between any of our agriculture degrees up to the end of Stage 2 if you would like to.
See the Modules section for more information about what you will study at each Stage.
