Agriculture is about understanding the land, animals, crops and community.

For those seeking a career in the industry, our Bachelor of Agricultural Sciences is the degree of choice. It is ranked 45th in the world and is the only Agricultural Science degree in South Australia.

Our hands-on approach to teaching will set you up to join this booming industry. You will: 

  • learn how to respond to global food shortages and a changing climate with sustainable practices, environmental stewardship, modern agribusiness and new technology
  • practice the latest methods, from adapting genes and cells for new crops to the business of livestock, and explore emerging trends, like vertical farming
  • build practical skills through at least 450 hours of internships and real-world learning at our working farm at Roseworthy
  • learn about industry-transforming technology, like drones, GPS and crop sensors
  • go on field trips across Australia, exploring everything from dryland farming to glasshouse systems
  • develop skills in agribusiness that will allow you to work in the business of farming
  • access the latest research, innovation and technology through government and industry partners.
Within just a few months of finishing, almost 90% of our graduates find full-time employment. In fact, on average there are four jobs available for every graduate. You’ll be set to improve primary production outputs in both rural and city locations. You could work as a consultant, conduct sustainability research, advise on government policy or innovate in urban and vertical farming. You might get a job in ag media, connecting farmers to their customers. Perhaps you’ll come up with ways to increase farming efficiency using modern drone technology.
