Study Regenerative Agriculture

Agriculture is facing a growing number of serious challenges, with degrading soils, increasing inputs and reduced water holding capacity across Australian landscapes. Looking to the future of food production demands that we rethink our approach to farming systems.

Drawing on the University’s specialist expertise in plant science, agronomy, ecology, agroforestry, environmental chemistry and socio-ecological systems, our courses delve into the emerging practices of, and growing evidence-base for regenerative agriculture, examining human ecology, agroecology, regenerative agricultural practices, strategies and soil management. Our students develop the capacity to produce regenerative strategies for farms and across landscapes.

Our regenerative agriculture courses are designed for students who want to be a part of a new way of farming that better supports, and is supported by natural processes, building more resilient farms and farmers in a future of increased seasonal and weather variability.

Championed by the University’s Regenerative Agriculture Alliance, the regenerative agriculture courses have been created in consultation with the Alliance’s Industry Advisory Group, comprised of the country’s leading regenerative agriculture practitioners.

Regenerative Agriculture may be studied either as a Graduate Certificate, Graduate Diploma or as a specialisation in the Bachelor of Science. You can also design your degree by studying Regenerative Agriculture as a major in the Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Business and Enterprise, Bachelor of Indigenous Knowledge or the Bachelor of Psychological Science.
