Study Regenerative Agriculture
Traditional Agriculture has left in its wake a growing number of serious environmental issues, degrading soils and reducing landscape water holding capacity. 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 agronomy and soil management as well as the planning of rural landscapes.
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.
They 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.
Regenerative Agriculture may be studied either as a Graduate Certificate 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 Social Science or the Bachelor of Psychological Science.
