Description

The master program is of 120 credits in the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS).

In the first semester (30 credits) there is a holistic and transdisciplinary approach to ecological, economic and social issues in farming and food systems.
The focus is on agroecosystems, on holistic methodology for their study, evaluation and improvement, on attitudes, ethics and values, and on individual and groupbased learning. Learning is based on exploring real-life farm and food systems cases.
The casework experience is supported by lectures, seminars and supervision, and the goal is to develop competency for responsible action by linking theory and practice. After the first semester, you can develop an area of concentration on various topics constituting 30 or 60 credits.
The programme offers many options for individual tailoring of the students´ subject profiles and for studying abroad at universities that cooperate with UMB.
The programme concludes with a master degree thesis constituting 30 or 60 credits. A 60 credits thesis must include a special syllabus of 5 credits.
