The Bachelor of Applied Science in Agricultural Innovation
The Bachelor of Applied Science in Agricultural Innovation is designed to capitalise on the extensive academic and research expertise in agriculture, food and the environment at the University of Otago. The teaching programme is primarily science-focused but also incorporates social, environmental, and economic aspects of agriculture, including traditional and contemporary Māori agriculture and mātauranga Māori.
It provides a coherent and thorough introduction to Agricultural Innovation that accentuates multidisciplinary problem-solving, critical thinking, independence, self-directed learning, and communication skills.
Increased breadth is developed through optional papers, from multiple specialities, linked to study of the natural world, human world, and technical world.
