School of Agric More

The School of Agricultural Sciences in 2013 started with two four-year degree programmes, namely: Bachelor of Science (Agribusiness Management) and Bachelor of Science (Agricultural Economics). Two years later, a third programme – Bachelor of Science (Horticulture) was introduced. The Bachelor of Science (Animal Science) was introduced in January 2017 and the School is poised to launch three more programmes during the 2017 Mid year Admissions namely, Bachelor of Science (Plant Science)BSc Agricultural Extension and Bachelor of Science (Agricultural Sciences with Education). As the School grows, it is expected that Postgraduate Programmes will be introduced, with the purpose of enhancing high level research in the relevant areas of agriculture. Since the School began its academic programmes, it has been engaged in distance teaching but has now also engaged in conventional (face-to-face) teaching in order to reach out to as many potential candidates as possible.

In 2012, the University Management conceptualized an idea of acquiring a farm land for the purpose of teaching and research as well as engaging in commercial enterprise. In 2013, His Royal Highness Chief Mpande of Mbala gave the University 500 hectares of land along the Kasama-Mbala highway as a way of contributing to the realization of goal of the University. There are plans to develop the Mbala land for the purpose it was acquired, and possibly re-locate the School of Agricultural Sciences to the area.
