We nurture the next generation of farm and food entrepreneurs and industry leaders for a sector that is vitally important to the Australian economy, supports over 1.6 million jobs, and is the biggest employer in rural and regional communities.
Our students and staff have access to research laboratories and interdisciplinary collaboration, including Dookie, our working farm campus.
You will have opportunities to demonstrate your ability to apply the knowledge you gain in your classes in either an internship or a research project, adding to your employability and career options.
LEARN INDUSTRY LEADERS AND TOP SCIENTISTS
Subjects in the Master of Agricultural Sciences are designed to deliver the knowledge you’ll need to excel in the agricultural industries. Many subjects include guest lectures from leaders at the top of the Australian agricultural sector, and your lecturers will include scientists who are international leaders in their fields.
WORK WITH INDUSTRY-LEADING MENTORS
It’s not just what you know that matters – it’s also who you know. University of Melbourne alumni work at all levels of industry, governance and research in the agriculture and food sector, and many have chosen to mentor students in the Master of Agricultural Sciences to pass on their knowledge and meet the next generation of leaders.
Students who are selected for the mentoring program have the opportunity to develop a greater understanding of the Australian agricultural sector and connect with industry experts at events and one-on-one meetings.
