The Master of Science in AgroEcology is designed to address the complexities of agriculturally used landscapes with a focus on sustainable development. It encompasses the intricate application of agroecological concepts within landscape-ecological contexts and tackles critical issues related to water management in agroecosystems, landscape design, and soil protection, with practical applications and a real-world perspective.

Moreover, this program is a collaborative effort, with instruction provided by the College of Agriculture (CA), College of Forestry (CF), and College of Natural Sciences (CNS).
