Study Regenerative Agriculture
As agriculture faces increasingly serious challenges in areas such as soil degradation, water, land management and crop sustainability, we need to rethink our approach to farming.
Our Regenerative Agriculture program draws on Southern Cross University’s expertise in plant science, agronomy, ecology, agroforestry, environmental chemistry and socio-ecological systems. It also works in collaboration with industry groups and the farming community.
Courses are designed for students who want to be a part of a new way of farming that better supports, and is supported by, natural processes. In this way, we can build more resilient farms and farmers for the future.
Our students examine human ecology, agroecology, regenerative agricultural practices, strategies and soil management. They also develop the capacity to produce regenerative strategies for farms and landscapes. Championed by the University’s Regenerative Agriculture Alliance, courses have been created in consultation with the Alliance’s Industry Advisory Group, comprising the country’s leading regenerative agriculture practitioners.
Regenerative Agriculture may be studied either as a Diploma, Graduate Certificate, Graduate Diploma or as a specialisation in the Bachelor of Science. You can also design your degree by studying Regenerative Agriculture as a major in the Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Business and Enterprise, Bachelor of Indigenous Knowledge or the Bachelor of Psychological Science.
