Senior Secondary - 11 & 12
 
AGRICULTURAL SCIENCE
 
Agricultural Science explores the way people manage natural resources such as plants and animals, climate, soils and water to meet their basic needs. It is a broad based area of study with opportunities for field, computer-based and traditional modes of learning.  Students develop an extensive knowledge of the agricultural sector, skills in research techniques, problem solving and communication.
 
Agricultural Science is a recommended subject in most of the diploma and degree courses offered by the Faculty of Natural Resources, Agriculture and Veterinary Science at the University of Queensland (St Lucia and Gatton College).  Being a broadly based subject it is of value in any further studies in the life sciences.
