With the Bachelor of Science (Regenerative Agriculture), Southern Cross University is rethinking our approach to farming systems and agricultural education. This degree introduces a new way of farming, supported by natural processes and building more resilient landscapes.
Conventional, intensive agricultural approaches have left a growing number of serious environmental issues, degrading soils and reducing landscape water holding capacity. Drawing on the University’s specialist expertise in plant science, agronomy, ecology, agroforestry, environmental chemistry and socio-ecological systems; this degree delves into the emerging practices of, and growing evidence-base for, regenerative agriculture. It examines human ecology, agroecology, regenerative agronomy and soil management as well as the planning of rural landscapes. Students will develop specialist knowledge in a whole-of-system approach to food production and farm management.
