Course content

All agriculture students learn the fundamentals of natural sciences, production technology and economics during the first semesters of their degree programme. Beginning in the fourth semester, they can choose to specialise in 'Landwirtschaft' (Agriculture) or 'Ökologische Landwirtschaft' (Ecological Agriculture). Ecological Agriculture differs in eight specialised modules and a practical training semester in an ecological farming company. Students specialising in Agriculture choose a major in their fifth semester: 'Agrarökonomie' (Agroeconomics), 'Tierische Erzeugung' (Livestock Production) or 'Pflanzliche Erzeugung' (Plant Production).
