Agroecology is the interdisciplinary science that provides information, methods of analysis, evaluation and improvement to promote development of secure and sustainable food systems. Methods from natural and social sciences are integrated to deal with the complex challenges of meeting human food needs in a resource-efficient manner that is economically sound, environmentally benign and socially acceptable.
The Agroecology programme offered by ISARA-Lyon (France Agro³) provides the ecological principles to study, design and manage agroecosystems that are both productive and natural resource preserving, socially just and economically viable.
The MSc Agroecology is designed as a two-year curriculum including a practical thesis project. International mobility is a key feature of the programme.
The MSc prepares students to link theory to practice and to cope with complex situation at different scales by combining scientific learning with professional and practical experiences.
