Find out more information about Agriculture & Forestry

Agriculture and forestry include sciences related to the study of animal and plant life and the management of resources cultivated and produced in these environments.

Agriculture degrees study the cultivation of soil for the growing of plants, fungi and animals, meant for human consumption and use. Agriculture studies deal with sub-fields such as agribusiness, agro-economics, agronomy, farming, animal husbandry, or agronomy.

Forestry refers to the study of forest ecosystems and their creation, management and conservation. Students of degrees in forestry learn sustainable solutions to lumber usage, as a limited valuable resource. Bachelors in Forestry include information about the harmful effects of human and non-human activities on forests and forest habitats.

Both disciplines focus on the management of resources, while conserving and protecting the natural environment. They make use of elements related to the fields of biology, physics, social sciences, as well as political and managerial sciences.

Careers in agriculture and forestry cover a wide range of occupations including: agricultural consultant, arboriculture expert, commercial horticulturist, ecologist, environmental consultant, farm manager, forest manager, land-based engineer, marine scientist, soil scientist.
