Agriculture | Stage 2 in 2017

Stage 1 Agriculture

Stage 1 Agriculture will be taught for the first time in 2017.

Stage 1 Agriculture may be undertaken as a 10-credit or a 20-credit subject.

Students analyse benefits and risks of different methods of agricultural production, and develop their awareness of how agriculture impacts on their lives, society, and the environment. They develop skills in critical thinking that inspire them to explore strategies and possible solutions to address major challenges now and in the future related to the global food supply. They explore and understand agricultural science as a human endeavour, and are encouraged to pursue future pathways, including in agriculture, horticulture, land management, agricultural business practice, natural resource management, veterinary science, food and marine sciences, biosecurity, and quarantine.
