18 Agriculture & Forestry Master's degrees in Netherlands

, M.Sc. Plant Breeding

Plant Breeding plays an important role in the development of plant varieties for food, feed and industrial uses. New varieties have to meet current demands regarding yield, disease resistance, quality characteristics, salt or drought tolerance and suitability for sustainable plant production systems. Wageningen UR offers the Plant Breeding (online Master Specialisation) degree course.

, M.Sc. Plant Biotechnology

Wageningen UR offers the MSc in Plant Biotechnology.Due to rapid technological developments in the genomics, molecular biology and biotechnology, the use of molecular marker technology has accelerated the selection of new plant varieties with many desirable traits. It also facilitates the design, development and management of transgenic plants.

Biology, Plants & Animals
, M.Sc. Marine Sciences

Marine Sciences studies how marine systems and processes operate naturally and how they change through human intervention.

Graduate School of Geosciences
, M.Sc. Plant Sciences

The Plant Sciences programme from Wageningen UR focuses on the principles of plant breeding, agro-ecology and plant pathology and the integration of these disciplines to provide healthy plants for food and non-food applications.

Biology, Plants & Animals
, M.Sc. Organic Agriculture

This Organic Agriculture programme from Wageningen UR has been designed to train students in multiple aspects of organic agriculture and the associated processing and marketing chain.

Biology, Plants & Animals
, M.Sc. Forest and Nature Conservation

The Forest and Nature Conservation programme at Wageningen UR focuses on policy, sustainable management and conservation of forest and nature; i.e. understanding and predicting the effect of phenomena such as global climate change, deforestation, biodiversity loss, ecotourism, timber production, hunting and animal reintroduction. Insights into all aspects of forest and nature conservation are required to address these issues with emphasis on both ecological and social aspects.

Environment & Landscape
, M.Sc. Aquaculture and Marine Resource Management

The Aquaculture and Marine Resource Management programme from Wageningen UR starts with courses that give a common basis on aquaculture and marine resource management. In these courses, you will learn the principles of marine ecology and the governance of marine systems, the biology and ecology of aquatic organisms and the role of science in public policy processes.

Biology, Plants & Animals
, M.Sc. European Master in Sustainable Animal Nutrition and Feeding

The European Master in Sustainable Animal Nutrition and Feeding MSc course from Wageningen UR is unique in its approach towards student mobility. This MSc programme is ‘thesis-oriented’, meaning students work from the first week during the first year towards their thesis, the research work which is conducted in the second year.

, M.Sc. Animal Sciences

Our tailor-made and thesis oriented Animal Sciences programme from Wageningen UR trains students to become skilled professional animal scientists, well equipped to develop modern,efficient and humane ways to care for and make the best use of the animals who share our lives.

Biology, Plants & Animals
, M.Sc. Soil Geography and Earth Surface Dynamics

This Soil Geography and Earth Surface Dynamics specialisation at Wageningen UR allows you to explore the spatial and temporal processes that are active in soils, landscapes and the wider earth system. It uses an integrative approach that combines biophysical and human elements to gain insight in past, present and future system dynamics.

Environment & Landscape
, M.Sc. Urban Studies (research MSc)

The Research Master in Urban Studies combines several disciplines to provide a multidisciplinary and comprehensive approach to study urban change and the opportunities and challenges this produces.

Faculty of Social and Behavioral Sciences
, M.Sc. Marine Biology

The programme is strongly research oriented. You will conduct research under the supervision of experienced scientists, do projects on the level of cells, organisms, and populations. It is possible to do fieldwork, like studying species interactions in the Wadden Sea or researching population dynamics of krill in the Antarctic. Lab work is a possibility as well, such as studying the influence of ultraviolet radiation on plankton.

Faculty of Mathematics & Natural Sciences
, M.Sc. Applied Stochastics

For many complex systems in nature and society, stochastics can be used to efficiently describe the randomness present in all these systems, thereby giving the data greater explanatory and predictive power. Examples include statistical mechanics, financial markets, mobile phone networks, and operations research problems. The Master’s specialisation in Applied Stochastics will train you to become a mathematician that can help both scientists and businesspeople make better decisions, conclusions and predictions. You’ll be able to bring clarity to the accumulating information overload they receive.

Faculty of Science
, M.Sc. Agricultural Production Chain Management

The Master of Agricultural Production Chain Management is intended for development specialists working in organisations dealing with agricultural production, processing, marketing, quality control and logistics. Typically, such work will confront them with complex problems that require new thinking and new approaches - providing services on the basis of demand, for example, rather than on the basis of production.
