This course aims to develop the next generation of human resources with advanced research abilities, profound knowledge and an international perspective in the fields of life, food and the environment. Master’s and doctoral students in this course can study a diverse range of agricultural, life and environmental sciences: Agronomy and Horticultural Science, Forest and Biomaterials Science, Applied Life Sciences, Applied Biosciences, Environmental Science and Technology, Natural Resource Economics, and Food Science and Biotechnology. We will examine the social effects of agriculture, such as the results of adopting various farming approaches. Each student will benefit by having several supervisors for their research guidance. The curriculum offers courses in the fields of natural and environmental sciences, geography, economics and information systems. Lectures are given by international teaching staff. Seminars and experimental courses are given by the course supervisors.
