About Faculty of Agriculture

The Faculty of Agriculture is one of eight faculties composing the University of South Bohemia in České Budějovice. The present portfolio of the faculty fully reflects the recent European trends – to complement the primary productive function of agriculture with its non-productive ones. The broader perspective encompasses not only particular technologies, but also the context in which agriculture operates, including natural, social, economic and cultural aspects. Rural space / countryside / land-scape issues attract still growing interest as both the subject of teaching and research realized at the Faculty. Faculty orientation gives graduates possibilities being successful on the employment market as well as encourages scientific and research integration in the frame of national and international scale.
