The Doctorate of Sustainable Agriculture aims to increase the capacity of the students to develop their own philosophical and ethical views on sustainable agriculture.

Students will learn to collaborate with others in learning, undertake cooperative project work with farmers and others in the rural sector, and integrate their studies in ecologically-sustainable agricultural production systems, business management, self-management, and social behaviour.
