Are you interested in the agricultural sciences and getting involved in farming, agricultural businesses, agricultural services, agricultural research and academics? Then the BSc (Agric) programs may well be for you, providing you with high quality, modern training to become an agronomist, soil scientist or an agricultural economist.
Two new four-year programmes were developed focusing specifically on Agronomy, Soil Sciences and Agricultural Economics.
Students will be able to register from January 2019 for two new BSc (Agric) programmes in the School of Agricultural Sciences, at the Potchefstroom Campus of the NWU. This follows an urgent need for teaching and research in agriculture in the region, addressing top priority food security issues.
