Agricultural Science

The subject of Agricultural Science in the Master of Education degree program explores all questions regarding the primary production of food for humans and animals as well as renewable resources. Subdisciplines are crop production, animal science, ecological agriculture as well as economics and social sciences. With Agricultural Science as their Major Professional Discipline, students choose one of three Minor Professional Disciplines: Crop Science (Crop Farming), Animal Science (Animal Breeding) or Agricultural Economics and Social Sciences. By choosing a Minor Professional Discipline, students can specialize in a certain field.

Educational sciences and subject didactics are paramount in this degree program, with the latter enabling prospective vocational school teachers to adequately convey their specialist knowledge to students training for relevant professions (e.g. agriculture, forestry, floristry, gardening, horse industry).

In teaching degree programs for vocational schools, students combine a Major Professional Discipline with a Minor Professional Discipline. In addition, students are trained in educational sciences. The practical semester is a key component of the degree program.

Possible lines of work:

Teaching at schools

For other possible lines of work, please refer to the Agricultural and Food Economics (MSc), Crop Sciences (MSc) and Animal Sciences (MSc) degree programs.

At the University of Bonn, multilingualism and cultural diversity are considered to be valuable resources that complement subject-specific qualifications. This is why, in addition to curricular language modules, students have access to a diverse range of language-learning offers, including the independent-study offers at the Center for Language Learning (Sprachlernzentrum, SLZ) in which they can autonomously learn a foreign language or enhance existing language skills. Furthermore, students can apply for the “Certificate of Intercultural Competence” free of charge, which promotes extra-curricular and interdisciplinary activities of international or intercultural nature.
