About

The Organic Agriculture and Food Systems (Double Degree) programme at Aarhus University offers a comprehensive and integrative education in all areas of organic farming, including the processing and commercialisation of organic food.

Overview

The core of Organic Agriculture and Food Systems (Double Degree)  programme at Aarhus University  comprises areas of specialisation that enable the students to profit from the particular and complementary strengths in teaching and research of the partner universities.

In offering the programme jointly, the partner universities can offer a wide range of elective and compulsory modules on organic agriculture and food systems and create added value for students in teaching and research, for example in the wide range of topics for the Master’s thesis. Students are challenged by different thematic approaches throughout the course of their studies: while the University of Hohenheim (Germany) focuses primarily on the food chain, the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences (Austria) emphasises the system approach of organic farming. Warsaw University of Life Sciences (Poland) offers a specialised study profile on organic food processing and marketing; while ISARA-Lyon (France) specialises in agroecology. At Aarhus University (Denmark), EUR-Organic is a distinct line under the MSc in Agrobiology, where students can focus on either animal health and welfare or plant nutrition and health.

In order to benefit from this complementary expertise and to get the most out of the programme, it is required that students spend one year at their chosen home university and one year at their chosen host university.

Detailed information about the programme is available online at the EUR-organic homepage, including information about the specialisations offered by the partner universities and the corresponding semester packages. This information is essential to registration by students for courses at both their home and their chosen host university.

Career profile

Graduates can choose from a wide range of careers in supporting organic farming development. Recent graduates have worked in research, with authorities and advisory services in primary production, and even in teaching. 

Programme Structure

  • Denmark is a world leader in organic food production, which provides the ideal setting for specialising in this field. The Danish government was one of the first to prioritise organic production, and an increasingly high percentage of food produced in Denmark today is organic. 
  • This programme gives students an international profile, network and perspective. Students will be exposed to differing parameters in different countries and agriculture systems around the world, and they will learn from their peers’ different ways of approaching a problem – a perfect preparation for a future career in an increasingly globalised industry.
