Bachelor of Science in Agriculture

B.Sc. Agriculture is a four-year UG (Undergraduate) degree program that focuses on theoretical and practical training in various agricultural techniques. B.Sc. Agriculture offers a wide range of opportunities for graduates to work in various sectors of agriculture, from technical aspects to commercial opportunities, and from production to sales.

A bachelor’s degree in agriculture is a broad-based program with a lot of promise. It covers topics such as food production, gardening, animal husbandry, rural economy and development, environmental health and so on. Other businesses may face layoffs, but agriculture will never be one of them because “food” is a basic human need. There will never be a recession or a slowdown when it comes to feeding the planet. Truly speaking, advances in technology, research, and inventions in this field have greatly expanded the scope of agriculture.

A student pursuing B.Sc. Agriculture degree will study Agronomy, Soil Science, Horticulture, Plant Breeding and Genetics, Entomology, Plant Pathology, Animal Science, Extension Education, Plant Biochemistry, Agriculture Economics and Fundamentals of Biotechnology, among other subjects. The course is based on ICAR (Indian Council of Agricultural Research) recommendations and is intended to teach students how to improve crop production in a sustainable manner while also providing a broad understanding of agriculture and allied fields.

The primary goal of this program is to:

  • Instil subject-specific knowledge while also establishing a link between practical solutions and theory.
  • Encourage students’ personal development and self-confidence, which will provide them with opportunities to work in the agribusiness.
  • Using scientific and experimental evidence to make agriculture-related issues appealing.
  • Use practical applications and research to hone problem-solving skills.
  • Collaborative and integrative pedagogy helps to adopt concepts quickly. 
  • Wide practical field exposure with individual allotment of working areas to various modules of Agriculture viz Hydroponics, Aeroponics, Mushroom Cultivation, Apiculture, Crop Cafeteria and many more designed in house by the students.
  • Interaction based ‘Flipped Classroom’ Learning Methodology.
  • 25+ research papers and articles published in reputed journals.
  • 3 funded research projects from UCOST, Dehradun, Uttarakhand.
  • 300+ alumni working with Government and Private Sectors.
  • Comprehend the theories and techniques used in successful organizations using “Practical Based” teaching pedagogy.
  • In close proximity to wide range of flora and fauna to be explored with the given curriculum. 
  • Prepares students for entrepreneurship and employment.
  • MoU’s with Krishi Vigyan Kendra and other registered agriculture and farm development centers.
