About

The ever increasing demand for organically produced foods requires new and different production systems. In order to create such sustainable organic production systems a fresh scientific approach is needed. Wageningen University and Research have created an Organic Agriculture programme to train academic professionals who want to work in this field.

Overview

The Organic Agriculture programme has been designed to train students in multiple aspects of organic agriculture and the associated processing and marketing chain. An important goal is to prepare the students for interdisciplinary teamwork at an academic level.

Well-rounded and holistic programme

This study is unique in that it combines detailed consideration of the underlying principles and processes from a natural science perspective with social and economic studies. Creative thinking is required to design new sustainable farming and marketing systems instead of simply optimising existing systems. The programme has an international character which uses case-studies and offers project opportunities in both the developed and developing world.

Future career - Organic Agriculture

The experience and diverse skills our students acquire working in interdisciplinary teams on practical cases, make them eligible for a broad range of jobs. Graduates of this Organic Agriculture programme from Wageningen University and Research will have career opportunities in agribusiness, research, extension, non-governmental organisations and public administration.

Programme Structure

Courses include:

  • The curriculum has been carefully formulated to provide a balance between fundamental and applied science. 
  • Various university groups such as agronomy, ecology, soil science, animal sciences, pest and disease management, food technology, sociology, communication science and economics participate, making this a well-rounded and holistic programme.
