Agriculture is a key contributor to the Irish economy and is currently experiencing a period of growth and expansion. This programme offers graduates a combination of skills and knowledge of key areas in agriculture such as Soil and Plant Science, Ruminant Husbandry and Agriculture Business Management. This is combined with a substantial work placement in Semester 2 of Year 2 where students will gain valuable work experience. Year 3 expands and builds upon the knowledge obtained in Year 1 and 2, with the study of modules such as Farm Waste and Environmental Science, Livestock Production and Animal Science.
