什么是心理学?

心理学一词源自于希腊文,意思是关于灵魂的科学。灵魂在希腊文中也代表着气体或呼吸,古人认为生命依赖于呼吸,呼吸停止也代表着生命的完结,之后随着科学的发展,心理学的对象从灵魂转为心灵。

根据美国心理学会的定义,心理学是一门关于人类思想和行为的研究。简单来说,心理学研究个人以及群体之间的互动,为了能更好地了解人与人之间、社会和社区当中的运作以及找出更好的交流方式。

心理学系学科

心理学系当中有不少学科,而其中最常见的有:

相信你也曾听说不少有关心理学这门课程,并且也看过不少相关的电影,例如《美丽心灵》、《斯坦福监狱实验》和《盗梦空间》。要是你不确定你是否适合读心理学,你可以根据以下的5个特征做出一些自我反思,来看看它是否符合你,再做出之后的决定。

在决定学习心理学前所必须具备的5个条件

1. 你是一位很好的聆听者

你朋友总称赞你是一位很好的聆听者。不仅如此,当你身边的亲朋好友遇到问题时,他们都会第一时间找你,告诉你他们所正在面临的问题。他们对你十分信任,并不怕把秘密告诉你。

2. 你善于和别人打交道

你喜欢与他人交流,围绕在他人的身边能让你感受到满满的能量。你喜欢听别人分享他们的故事以及生活背景,并不是因为你想要窥探他人,而是因为你想要更深一步的了解他们。此外,你也十分享受与他人之间有更深层的对话。

3. 你思想开明,并且客观

你总在倾听朋友们分享生活点滴和问题,但你从不指责他们,反而会接受能真正面对自己的人。你试图了解他们的立场以及为何他们会有那些想法和做出那些举动。

4. 你善于分析

你善于观察他人、注意别人的性格特质以及很容易地就把一些小细节给记住。你喜欢学习,对他人的行为特质保持着好奇心,并且喜欢把不一样的人物特质和行为拼凑在一起。

5. 你有自信地与他人沟通

你可以很有自信地表达你的想法、你的观察、以及你的知识。你能够轻易地分享你得出的结论且传达给身边的人,尤其是你的亲朋好友。

如果你具备以上的特质,那么心理学对你而言可能会是个正确的选择!

对护理专业人才需求的增长

护理行业展示了它发展的潜力和对人才的需求。澳大利亚一直对医疗工作者持有欢迎的态度。最近,护士的需求量特别大。这是由于澳大利亚的人口增长在过去 50 年中翻了一倍多,而且预计将逐年增长。这导致有经验的医疗工作者大量空缺。因此,联邦政府增加了对公立医院的拨款,从而扩大了他们的医疗服务范围,并建设了许多新医院。

因此,即将建好的新医院需要更多有经验的医疗人员,这正推动该国对护士的需求。随着需求的增加,预计会有更高的工资,福利和更好的工作环境。

护理是个多样化的职业

护士对于国家的医疗系统起到至关重要的意义,他们每天都在提高患者的生活品质。护士被视为最道德,最诚信以及最值得信赖的职业,是医疗领域不可或缺的一部分。他们是医生和患者之间的关键纽带。医生偶尔会因为侧重于整体的医疗计划而忽视患者的一些细节问题。但是护士的作用就是完善这些问题。护士与患者的接触的时间最多,因此,护士是最适合去了解患者的问题和需求并及时将其告知医生。

澳大利亚大学物理治疗专业排名

Sharing is caring :)

第一次世界大战初期,许多医生对“按摩疗法”持怀疑态度。但是,当时大批的士兵急需康复治疗。物理治疗师们正好借此机会,向世人展示并证明了物理治疗强大的治疗作用。到1918年底,物理治疗逐渐变得广为人知。在20世纪30年代末,“物理治疗”一词被社会各界广泛采纳与运用。

第一次世界大战之后,物理治疗传入澳大利亚,并被发扬光大。

那么,物理治疗究竟是什么?这种疗法有什么医疗作用?它又是如何帮助广大在战争中身受重伤的士兵们康复的呢?

什么是物理治疗?

物理治疗以循证医学为基础,将患者视为“完整的个体”。通过非侵入性的治疗手段,以及对患者生活习惯的指导建议,致力于提升患者的健康水平与福祉。对于因受伤、疾病、残疾造成活动功能障碍的人,物理治疗师通过运动训练、徒手治疗、健康教育与指导,最大限度地帮助患者恢复身体功能,提高其独立生活与工作的能力。

物理治疗师会鼓励、帮助人们自我发展,独立生活工作。他们不仅能够帮助患者缓解疾病带来的痛苦,也能够帮助各个年龄阶段的人防治疾病,保持健康。物理治疗师通过系统的理论学习和临床实践,运用专业的知识和技能,帮助患者改善身体各个系统的健康状况,例如:

  • 呼吸系统疾病:哮喘、支气管炎,囊性纤维化等
  • 心血管疾病:心脏病后康复,中风后康复等
  • 骨骼肌肉疾病:腰背疼痛,挥鞭样损伤相关疾病,运动损伤,关节炎等
  • 神经系统疾病:帕金森病,脑卒中,多发性硬化等

常见的物理治疗方法有哪些?

软组织按摩术

通常也被称为治疗性按摩疗法。这种治疗法有助于调节肌肉机能,增强肌肉弹性,张力和耐久性,缓解病理紧张并促进排出有毒代谢产物;可以影响神经机能,使患者整体状态更为兴奋或镇静,帮助患者振奋精神或缓解疲劳,从而达到治疗的目的。这也是目前缓解运动损伤与疼痛的最佳治疗方法。

关节活动锻炼法

关节活动范围受限可造成疼痛、降低人的身体功能、增加皮肤损伤(皮肤破损)和褥疮的风险。物理治疗师开发出一系列关节活动范围的练习,包括主动锻炼、主动辅助锻炼和被动锻炼的三种关键锻炼法。关节活动锻炼法用于促进患者患处的血液循环并提升关节活动度。该疗法可以防止患者肌肉萎缩等其他相关问题,并提高患者的身体灵活性,以此提高患者的生活独立性。

电疗

电疗是一种利用不同类型电流和电磁场治疗疾病的方法。通过连接在患者皮肤上的电极,导入不同类型电流,产生不同的治疗作用。其中,低、中频电流可以刺激神经肌肉收缩,降低痛阈,缓解粘连,常用于神经肌肉疾病,如损伤、炎症等。而高频电流可以用于消退炎症和水肿,刺激组织再生,止痛。

冷疗法和热疗法

冷疗是以降低患处的温度来达到治疗效果的方法。冷疗法通过不同的冷却方法,来减少组织血液量及减慢组织的新陈代谢,可降低出血及发炎的情况。对于痉挛、肌肉挛缩有一定的效果。还有可提升痛阈,降低疼痛,使病人在接下来的运动或治疗时较舒服。

热疗是一种将患处组织加热以达到治疗效果的治疗方式。通过热疗法,让患处温度上升,血管会扩张,治疗部位的血流量也得以增加,可以加速身体的代谢,让营养物质可以快速到达受伤的部位,因此可以促使组织更快地愈合。

治疗性超声波

治疗性超声波通常指的是用于治疗用途的超声波,是声疗的一种。超声波频率以软波形式瞄准受损组织,通过传感器或者涂药器来直接接触皮肤,并被人体的韧带、肌腱和筋膜吸收。治疗性超声波可以提高治疗部位的血液流速、减小疼痛感。适用于关节炎、肌腱炎和肌肉拉伤的患者。

优秀的物理治疗师需要哪些必备技能?

1. 强烈的同理心 

疾病不仅给患者带来的身体上的不适与痛楚,甚至还会带来心理上的不安全感。来到医院、诊所的患者情绪往往比较低落,且缺乏安全感。因此,物理诊疗师必须拥有强烈的同理心,可以设身处地地为患者着想,以更好地帮助患者恢复身体与心理健康。

2. 批判性思维  

优秀的物理诊疗师必须很好地完善分析和全面评估患者的身体健康状况,根据患者的自身情况,并充分结合自身的专业背景知识,对患者做出最准确、最有效的诊断与治疗,提出合适合理的治疗建议与诊疗方法。

3. 全面的观察能力  

通常情况下,不同的病人往往有着不同的健康背景和身体状况,因此,优秀的物理治疗师必须有很强的观察能力,根据一些基本信息,例如患者的性别、年龄和既往病史等信息,来初步判断病情的严重程度。更重要的是,也要利用自身强大的观察能力,发现患者未披露的健康隐患和一些潜在风险。帮助患者更加了解自己的病情状况、严重程度,以免耽误最佳治疗时间和机会。

4. 良好的时间管理能力  

通常,每次会诊需要1-2个小时。优秀的物理治疗师需要在有限的时间内完成“望闻问切”的基本会诊步骤,包括观察患者整体状况、提供咨询服务、进行诊断,提出合适的治疗计划等。因此,优秀的物理诊疗师需要在有限的会诊时间内,尽可能多地了解患者,并高效地提供和完成相关的诊断与治疗工作。所以,一位优秀的物理治疗师必须拥有良好的管理时间能力。

Top 10 Universities to Study Marketing Degree in Australia

Sharing is caring :)

Marketing is one of the most exciting courses you can study with tons of job opportunities in every sector you can think of.  A marketing team is a primary part of every company or brand. To put it in a fancier way, the doors a marketing degree will open for you is endless.

However, before pursuing any degree it is important to ponder over whether it is the right course for you. Down below, we have provided for you, all the answers you might need to answer this question.

What is Marketing?

Marketing is basically about the communication of a brand and the value of its products or services to consumers and customers, for the purpose of selling the product or service. The ultimate goal of marketing for any brand is to boost sales. 

In the past, marketing was done through word of mouth and it all depended on who could shout the loudest and was the most persuasive. To this day, the theory behind marketing remains the same, however the methods have changed immensely considering the digitalization of the world. 

Why Study Marketing?

To answer the question of whether you should pursue a career in marketing, you should ask yourself a series of sub-questions. 

  • Is Marketing right for you?

Just as any other career, marketing is not for everyone. You need to possess a set of qualities that match with the skills you need to become a successful marketer. Although marketers do come from different backgrounds, there are some personality traits they tend to have in common;

  • Creative and self-motivated
  • Persuasive and approachable 
  • Able to work in a team
  • Detail-oriented and efficient 
  • Able to make last minute changes
  • Able to be both a leader and a follower
  • Up To-date on trends
  • Able to understand customer needs

The list of course doesn’t end here, but now you have an idea of the basic qualities you need to possess. 

  • Is it a career you will enjoy? 

A typical marketing job involves data collecting, budgeting and developing marketing strategies. The aspect of marketing that most people find exciting however is, coming up with creative marketing campaigns. You must have come across successful marketing campaigns by big brands such as Nike. For example, Nike’s “Find Your Greatness” Campaign, which was focused on identifying with the inner athlete in you, since most of Nike’s customers are not professional athletes, rather normal people who are into sports wear. 

As a marketer, coming up with engaging and thought provoking campaigns like this will be a big part of your job. Whether you find this enjoyable or not however, really depends on you. 

What Will You Study in a Degree in Marketing?

Study Financial Investment in Australia

Sharing is caring :)

When you come across conversations or topics about money, the economy, stock markets or interest rates, do you get daunted and immediately want to turn the other way, or are you curious and intrigued to learn and understand how it works? If you choose the latter, keep reading- a degree in financial investment might interest you!

What is Financial Investment?

Finance is the procurement and management of financial resources (including cash, bonds, assets, property, stocks, etc) by individuals, companies and governments. 

A financial investment is the act of leveraging your financial resources into an asset with the hope that it will accumulate into a larger sum than what was put in, over a stipulated time frame. The time frame could range anywhere from a few months or for a span of decades.

People choose to invest in order to have more financial security in the future. How much time you’re willing to put into your investment is a key factor to consider. The more time you have, the more risk you can take, and the more risk you take, the more potential for making more money, and vice versa. 

A degree in finance prepares students to acquire, administer and allocate wealth, to make informed decisions within financial and trade markets and draw connections between risk and rewards. In order to excel at a career in financial investment, you need to have a keen eye for detail, enjoy taking up challenges and solving problems, excel at critical and analytical thinking, and possess a great deal of discipline and patience, as you will be subjected to an immense amount of pressure and stress.

Types of Financial Investment

Areas of Study

  • Corporate Finance

  • Economics

  • Statistics

  • Mathematics

  • Business

  • Risk Management

How to Determine Good or Bad Investments

Investments are made with the hope for potential gains in the future- there is always a certain level of risk attached to it. An investment may not generate any income, or even end up losing value over time. 

There are a plethora of available choices when it comes to investing. The distinction between a good or a bad investment is not always black or white- but there are certain red flags and positive signals that could help you identify what is worth putting your time, money and effort into.

1. Stock Prices

  1. Analyse a stock’s price change over a financial year, to get a sense of the overall performance
  2. Calculate the stock’s price-to-earnings ratio
  3. Compare the results with the average price-to-earnings ratio (approx. 15). If the results exceed or severely miss the price-to-earnings ratio, it could be an indicator that the stock is either priced too high or too low- which calls for further investigation

2. Balance Sheet/ Financial Statements

  1. Look at the company’s most recent financial statements and quarterly reports to determine if they are profitable
  2. Compare profitability, sales and market share with other companies in the same industry and see if they have a competitive edge- which often makes for good investments
  3. Identify economic risks common to the industry. Assess how these conditions could affect short-run and long-run returns on investment

3. Bonds

  1. Identify the return % on the bond (use an investment calculator) and compare yielding results with other bonds to see if you stand to receive a fair return
  2. Categorise potential bonds into investment grade and non-investment grade: investment grade bonds are more reliable (the lower it ranks, the better) while the latter pays higher yields but carries the threat of default
  3. Figure out the time frame in which you want to start earning your gains, and see if it matches up to your investment timeline. Some bonds mature in a matter of years, while others might take decades

Via The Nest

Signs of a Bad Investment

1. Your Financial Advisor Stands to Gain a Big Commission

Financial Investors are not legally required to act in your best interest, and more often than not, when they are working on a commission basis, they will prioritise their interests over yours. They may recommend investments that do not match what you are looking for, if they stand to earn money from your buying it. If they charge you commissions up front, your advisor has no incentive to provide you with the best incentive regarding your investment, so avoid those as well. 

2. Everyone is Buying It

Following the herd and investing in what’s most “hot” at the moment might not be the best idea- these stocks are prone to rise quickly, but they often fall just as quickly too. While many want to get rich quick, jumping on the latest bandwagon might not work out for you, or it just might.

3. It Sounds Too Good to be True

If you are being pitched an investment idea that carries zero risks, with guaranteed returns and quick, you might be led into a scam. All investments carry risk.

4. It Doesn't Match Your Risk Tolerance

Of course, an investment opportunity that is a bad fit for someone else might be the perfect one for you; ultimately it comes down to how much risk you are willing to take. If you need returns quickly, it doesn’t make sense for you to take up high-risk stocks as you don’t have the time to wait for them to recover.

5. Investments that Carry Surrender Charges

Some investments carry surrender charges, meaning if you want to get out of an investment, for any reason, you are not allowed access to your money without paying a hefty fee.

6. Investments with Limited Marketability

Investing in illiquid assets (ones that do not have much trading volume) limits your access to your funds as well, limiting flexibility.

7. Confusing Investments

If you are unable to understand the investment, or if it sounds too complicated, you could either ask more questions, or hire a professional to evaluate the investment. If the salespeople cannot explain the details of the investment in plain English, walk away.

Common Questions by an Investor

Why Invest When I Can Just Save Money With Zero Risk?

With an investment, you are putting your money in the hands of a firm, expecting it to grow and provide you with positive returns in the form of capital gains, dividends, and interest.  Cash in its original form will not grow by itself, and may even lose its purchasing power over time due to economic fluctuations or inflation.

Should I Invest All My Money In a Single Stock?

You could be tempted to pour all your money in a single investment that looks promising, but it is more advisable to consider investing in small amounts at regular intervals instead, to reduce potential risk from market conditions.

Where Can I Invest My Money?

For many people, when it comes to investing, stocks are the first thing that comes to mind. But there are a diverse array of investment choices- bonds, real estate, commodities, and even money. You could also choose to invest in different industries in order to reduce risk.

Misconceptions About Investments

I Need a lot of Money to Start Investing

While it’s true that more money will allow you more options, more investing and get you more returns, it’s not necessarily a requirement. Many brokers now allow you to invest even with pocket change. Starting small means you get to start early on.

I Need to Wait Until I’m Older to Start Investing

You are more likely to have more financial commitments when you’re older, like starting a family or buying a house, which might make allocating investment funds challenging. Also, if you start investing later in life, you might be tempted to take on riskier investment, hoping for a quicker return, which could lead to loss with no time to recover from it. Starting small and keeping it going for a long period of time allows you to take advantage of reinvesting and the compound effect.

Investments Tie My Money Up for a Long Time

The length of the investment is entirely up to you and your investment needs. Short and medium term investments allow you to take advantage of market opportunities and cash out in a matter of months or years, while long-term investments are for those willing to withstand the short-term fluctuations in the market.

Investments are the Same as Speculations

Investments are long-term commitments, and the gaining the returns is expected to take several years. Hence, they are made after careful consideration and several risk benefit analyses, once proven to be worthy. Investors look to expand their investment portfolios over time.

Speculation, on the other hand, is short-term and attempts to capitalise on market inefficiencies for a quick profit. While speculators do make informed decisions as well, they are subject to higher risks than traditional investments as they are often pure, directional bets on prices.

Investments are the Same as Gambling

When investing, you are putting money into a cause, expecting it to provide you with returns in the future. They carry risk, but are expected to have positive outcomes. 

Gambles are based entirely on chance, and do not require money to be put in. They carry risk, and are expected to have negative returns in most cases.

Cyber Security Degree & Courses in Australia

Sharing is caring :)

What is Cyber Security?

Cyber Security is the practice of protecting computers, servers, mobile devices, electronic systems, networks, and data from malicious attack. The key features of a strong security system consist of multiple layers of protection in a company’s computers, programs and networks. Firewalls, antivirus software, anti-spyware software and password management tools should all work together to outsmart innovative cyber criminals.

The principles of Cyber Security are confidentiality, integrity, and availability (CIA). Every element of a Cyber Security program should be designed to meet one or more of these principles.

Confidentiality – Ensure that private information is remained disclosed and can be accessible to individuals who require the information to fulfil their task

Integrity – This principle is designed to ensure that data can be trusted, accurate and that it has no unauthorized modifications of data. 

Availability – This principle ensures that the information is available to authorized users when it is needed and such access is not affected by system failure or cyber-attacks.

Importance of Cyber Security

In the era of digital globalization, the rise of internet use and technological advancement has also increased the vulnerability of cyber attacks if proper security systems are not installed.  Over the years, Cyber Security practice is becoming an important focus for governments and also organizations across the globe. Government, military, corporate, financial, and medical organizations possess sensitive data stored in computers and other devices, which are highly confidential and not intended for the public view. A small portion of the data breach could result in a disastrous effect on the company and also the country. 

Besides that, individuals also face many cyber threats as well. Identity theft is a global issue, where hackers steal an individual’s personal information and sell it for cash rewards. Hackers use various approaches to steal individual identity and demand ransom. Camera devices are vulnerable for hackers to invade individuals’ household privacy, which is also a major concern for our society. 

Types of Cyber Security

Application security

Application security uses software and hardware methods to prevent malicious threats that can enter during the development stage of an application. Antivirus programs, firewalls and encryption programs are examples of application security

Network Security

Network security is used to prevent unauthorized or malicious users from accessing data inside the network. Common examples of network security include extra logins and new passwords. 

Cloud Security

Cloud security is used by the majority of businesses moving in cloud computing as part of the IT solutions. Cloud security secures the usage of software-as-a-service (SaaS) applications and the users access privileges by preventing cloud accounts from unauthorized access. 

Internet Security

Internet security protects information that is found in browsers and also network security involving web-based applications. The protection is designed to alert malware as well as unwanted traffic. Examples of protections are firewalls, antimalware, and antispyware software.

Types of Cyber Security Threat

Phishing

Phishing attacks use fake communication such as text message or email to trick a victim in opening it and steal the victim data such as credit card numbers and login information. This results in identity theft, funds robbery, or unauthorized purchases for the victim.

Malware

Malware is a type of code that is made to affect a computer system without the users’ consent to gain access to personal information or to damage the device. Examples of malware include spyware, viruses and worms.

SQL Injection

Structured Query Language (SQL) injection employs malicious code to exploit backend databases to access undisclosed information. This may include numerous items including private customer details, user lists, or sensitive company data.

Denial of Service (DoS)

Denial of service (DoS) floods a targeted computer or network with information that triggers a crash, causing it to be inaccessible for users. DoS attacks often target web servers of organizations such as trade organizations, media companies, commerce, and banking.

Advanced Persistent Threat (APT)

Advanced persistent threat (APT) uses sophisticated hacking techniques in which an intruder accesses a network and remains anonymous for a prolonged period of time. APT attacks are initiated to steal data from organizations such as national defence, manufacturing and the financial industry.

What do you study in a Cyber Security Degree & Courses?

A Cyber Security degree helps students to gain practical and theoretical knowledge in this critical aspect of IT. Students will learn with the latest technologies to develop skills in programming and hacking and strengthen their understanding of security and privacy. A typical degree in Cyber Security takes 3-4 years to complete, including work placement to gain experience and prepare for the job market.

Common subjects offered for a Cyber Security degree are as follows.

  • Programming
  • Discrete Mathematics
  • System Security
  • Cyber Security Analytics
  • Digital Forensics
  • Secure Networking

Career Opportunities with a Cyber Security Degree

Cyber Safety specialist

Cyber Safety specialists provide security during the development stages of software systems, networks and data centres. They look for any opening of cyber attacks in both hardware and software, as well as responsible for building firewalls in network infrastructures. 

Data security analyst

Responsible for implementing and testing various security programs such as firewalls and data encryption technology to protect the company’s sensitive data. They also are updated to remove bugs and add new features.

Security analyst

Security analysts analyze security policies and procedures to identify flaws in the company’s security system. They also make the necessary precautions for potential flaws by assessing new firewall technology to protect your systems. 

Cyber intelligence

Cyber intelligence analysts work in network administration or network engineering to assist in countering the activities of hackers and developers of malicious software. They gather information on malware-related criminal activities and predict their future activities based on what they gathered.

Study Agricultural Science Degree in Australia

Sharing is caring :)

Agriculture has been associated with the beginning of civilisation and still remains as important in sustaining human life. The very beginning of agriculture started with sticks and stones as the tools used for farming activities. Today, the agriculture sector has advanced in technology, ranging from seed drilling to fertilising crops by drone, making it convenient for farmers to maximize the production of agriculture.

Agriculture is an important industry for its contribution to the sustainability and development of countries’ economies, by offering job opportunities such as the processing, distribution, and marketing of crops and livestock products. Thus, it is important for more students to be interested to engage and explore the agricultural industry as the generations to come are vital in the future development of this industry. 

This article will cover the importance and the studies of agriculture and the career opportunities available for students who graduate with a degree in agricultural science. 

What is Agriculture?

Video Credit: Don’t Memorise

Agriculture is the process of cultivating soil, growing crops and raising domesticated animals (livestock). It involves the processing of plant and animal products and the distribution of these end products for human use and consumption. 

Food production is the main goal of agricultural activities. It requires the rearing of livestock, plants and other living things for food, fibre, biofuels and dairy products to maintain the nutrition needs and the overall well being of human life.

Cotton, leather and wool are also part of agricultural products, as well as wood for building and paper goods.

Types of Agriculture

There are two main types of agriculture, which are industrialized agriculture and subsistence agriculture. Both may vary in terms of the size of the production and agricultural methods.

Industrialized Agriculture 

Industrialized Agriculture is a type of agriculture where crops and livestock are produced in large numbers to maximize profit. Industrialized agriculture replaces animals and manpower with large machines to produce large quantities of food in a short time. Chemical fertilizers and pesticides are utilized often to increase yield and plant size as well as avoid crops to be harmed or consumed.

Subsistence Agriculture 

Subsistence agriculture is small-scale farming, mainly producing crops for consumption by the farmer and their family. If there is a surplus of food, it might be sold locally or within families or relatives. Subsistence agriculture is very labour-intensive because they depend on animals and hand tools to work on the land. Instead of chemical fertilizers, farmers raise chicken, goat and cows to use their manure as fertilizers for plants. 

Importance of Agriculture

Agriculture is the main source of food supply for humans and other relevant industries. As the world population increases on a yearly basis, the demand for food is also on the rise, therefore the land needed to cultivate food products also increases. A stable agricultural industry ensures the food security of a country. Food security has always been at the top priority of any country. Countries which struggle to secure the supply chain of food distribution to meet the demand of its people will also struggle to make progress in developing its countries’ economies. These often result in starvation or famine as we could still see in under-developing countries. 

The agriculture sector has a great impact on a country’s economy, as it plays a major role in creating employment opportunities, especially in developing countries. For example, farm owners require lots of man-powers in cultivating plants and raising livestock. Moreover, other sectors would also be involved with the agriculture industry to process raw crops or animal products, packaging the products and to advertise and market them to the end-users for consumption. Thus, a progressive agriculture industry will have a great benefit to boost a country’s employment. It is not surprising that the agriculture sector has become an essential factor for developing and also sustaining a country’s economy.

What is an Agricultural Science Degree?

Agricultural science covers a broad interdisciplinary field of biological sciences focused on natural, economic and social science practised in agriculture. The degree course provides students with a wider picture of agriculture, including the study of agricultural technology, principles of management and research methodology. Other scientific subjects also include the biological study of agriculture and the conservation of ecosystems.

A BSc or undergraduate degree in agriculture would be a three or four-year course, including industrial placements for students to apply the knowledge gained in the degree in real-life practical settings. Universities offer the course with different specializations for students to tailor their studies in areas that interest them the most such as agronomy, animal science, horticulture, natural science, plant and soil science, etc.
