People who study agricultural sciences study all the techniques – from genetic modification to aquaculture – that have helped the world’s food production keep pace with an ever increasing population, the effects of climate change, and people’s appetite for ever more complex diets. So if you like working both in a lab and outside, developing and improving techniques for crop production, and if both food and science are passions, you might enjoy studying agricultural sciences.
