The aim of the Agroecology course form Aarhus University is to train and promote the next generation of researchers, scholars, and technology developers within soil and environmental sciences and technology at the highest scientific level in a truly inter-disciplinary and international atmosphere.


Agroecology is a branch of science that deals with the interactions between soils, plants, animals, humans and the environment within ecological systems created for the production of food.

 The programme from Aarhus University embraces research education within the fields of:

  • Agricultural Systems and Sustainability
  • Climate and Water
  • Crop Health
  • Enthomology and Plant Pathology
  • Soil Fertility
  • Soil Physics and Hydropedology

Research facilities available

A PhD education at Agroecology gives access to e.g., state-of-the-art laboratories, GIS-laboratories, greenhouses, the largest semifield and lysimeter facilities in Europe, and 1,300 hectares of farmland for experiments.

Programme Structure

Courses include: 

  • The course is based on two main modules. The first module is a theoretical module, which aims at exploring the core notions of agroecology, systems thinking and scientific perspectivism. 
  •  The second module of the course is a plenary panel session, where senior members of the department staff will be asked to present their field of scientific inquiry, and their understanding of the notion ‘agroecology’.
