Germany Full Time
Bachelor of Science Onsite

Sustainable Agriculture is a study course combining technical, natural, economic, and social disciplines of science. In a range of interdisciplinary projects, students learn to analyze, evaluate, and optimize agricultural and horticultural production systems as an integral part of the value chain.

The outcome is an intensive study of the three major areas of sustainability: environmental stewardship, economic profitability, and social responsibility. In cooperation with companies and institutions, this application-oriented study course allows for a high level of practical relevance.

Alongside the provision of technical and scientific content and the establishment and development of methodological skills, the social competences of each individual are strengthened.

Possibility of finding part-time employment

Non-EU students can work up to 120 full days or 240 half days per year without requiring an additional visa. Student jobs within the university can be solely in English, but the vast majority of off-campus jobs will require at least basic proficiency in German. German courses are available for students through our International Center.

First-year students are strongly advised to focus primarily on their studies and to begin learning German. This will open up many more part-time job opportunities in later semesters.
