The integrated degree programme in Horticultural Science is offered jointly by Alma Mater Studiorum – University of Bologna (Department of Agricultural Sciences at the School of Agriculture and Veterinary Medicine) and Free University of Bozen (Faculty of Science and Technology). The international degree programme, which has been designed for highly motivated students, aims to form international-level professionals that will be qualified for designing, managing and assuring the quality of agricultural business along the whole production chain. The final aim is to allow future professionals to increase the sustainability of the production chain, from the environmental preservation and protection to the social and economical aspects (People-Planet-Profit). [+]

IMAHS - International Master in Horticultural Science Alma Mater Studiorum - University of Bologna Free University of Bozen General overview of the programme Horticulture provides society with vital and nutritious fruit and vegetables, consumed fresh or processed, that are the heart/backbone of a healthy diet and improve our well-being. Horticultural production significantly contributes to the livelihoods of rural communities in both developed and developing countries and generates significant income opportunities along the entire supply chain. The new challenges of producing more food in a more sustainable way for a growing population calls for a new generation of professionals both equipped with technical skills and able for holistic thinking to successfully tackle the growing complexity of food production in a globalized market. This applies especially to horticulture, also due to a severe decline in the number of graduates and university degree programmes and the ageing of professional horticulturalists, in spite of the variety and number of job opportunities in the area. The Master in International Horticultural Science will be offered jointly by Alma Mater Studiorum - University of Bologna and Free University of Bozen-Bolzano, Faculty of Science and Technology. The master (laurea magistrale) has been developed to meet the present and future challenges of the horticultural sector. The programme is the result of a joint initiative of the University of Bologna, well known for its long tradition in higher education, and the Free University of Bozen-Bolzano, a young higher education institution with a trilingual profile. Students will experience multidisciplinary training and research-led teaching in subjects covering the main aspects of horticultural production and the supply chain. The programme will benefit from the collaboration with the horticultural industry. Students will have the opportunity to spend up to two semesters in one of the European partner universities and be entitled to earn a double degree. The programme is structured in four semesters (each of 30 ECTS). The first and second semesters, held at the University of Bologna, has a focus on methodological aspects, on the efficient use of resources in the production process and on the quality of horticultural produces. The third semester, at the Free University of Bozen-Bolzano, covers the sustainable management of fruit trees and grapevines and the supply chain management of horticultural products. During the fourth semester, an internship and the preparation of the Master thesis are foreseen. Admission requirements Prospective candidates should hold a Bachelor degree (180 ECTS) in agriculture or related life science disciplines and have acquired basic knowledge in the following fields: crop production, plant pathology and protection, entomology and agricultural economics. Courses are entirely taught in English, therefore, to be admitted, students need to provide a recognised English language certificate (standard entry level: B2 of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages).
