Academic programmes in the Department are designed and structured to prepare you for an exciting and successful career in the global agricultural and food sector and in the rural and poverty-stricken communities of Africa. In this respect, we work closely with the Postgraduate School of Agriculture and Rural Development as well as the other departments in the Faculty of Natural and Agricultural Sciences and the School of Economic Sciences in the Faculty of Economic and Management Sciences.
The Department is one of the leading research departments of the University of Pretoria. We take pride in our research work and our graduate students have effectively been taking part in and contributed significantly to our research programme. We hope that you will continue in this spirit.
