Agronomy

A master's degree is a postgraduate academic degree. One must already have an undergraduate degree to apply for a master's program. Most master's degree program would require students to complete a master's thesis or research paper.

Agronomy is the study of soil and plants, so a program in this field should provide students with courses related to plant biology. Courses may also cover topics such as agriculture principles, crop genetics, global farming issues and natural resource management.

There are more than four thousand higher education organizations in Europe, from leading research institutions to small, teaching-focused universities. Europe itself is not as much different than other continents, reaching from the Arctic Circle to the coast of Africa.
