Graduates will acquire the tools-of-the-trade enabling them to analyse and understand ecosystematical, economic, political and administrative interdependencies and develop integrative problem solutions.

This is one of the most pressing problems for us to solve. Food production relies ever more on technical means of production, thus straining our natural resources to their limit. Nevertheless, food production has intensified and the globalisation of markets even speeds up this process.

One of this century's major challenges is to intensify food production as environmentally friendly and sustainably as possible. The concept of sustainability also includes recycling of waste. Complex problems particularly arise on the periphery of densely populated areas where competing forms of land use have to be balanced (e.g. settlement, recreation, waste disposal). In attempts to handle these problems we not only have to consider scientific and technical, but also socio-economic, political and legal aspects.

To this end the University of Hohenheim has developed the M.Sc. programme "Environmental Protection and Agricultural Food Production". It is designed to provide qualified people of all nationalities with internationally competitive, state-of-the-art training.
