Welcome to the Faculty of Agricultural Sciences at Uganda Christian University!
Whereas agricultural sciences have been taught at Uganda Christian University since 2008, this faculty is the newest thing to happen in 2021!
We have a community of professionals and scholars who are committed to excellence and intellectual thoroughness. In our discourse, we challenge ourselves to generate knowledge in novel ways to address the agricultural challenges in our communities. This is because we are cognizant of the global knowledge demand for sustainably producing nutritionally dense food, its value addition and safety through appropriate food storage and distribution, whilst reducing food waste. As such, the Faculty prides in undertaking revolutionary research as we train students to become successful agri-preneurs and problem solvers in their communities and society. We hope that the Faculty of Agricultural Sciences will be your faculty of choice as you look for a home for your professional and personal development.
We have 9 programmes, 4 undergraduate and 5 at postgraduate level
Our mission is to collaboratively connect with stakeholders in identifying their food, health, nutritional and agricultural needs and co-creating knowledge to tackle their key challenges. We actively prepare our students to engage with communities in applying this knowledge and to become successful individuals.
We have a vision to become a centre of excellence in food and nutritional security through spearheading cutting edge innovation in agriculture as well as taking the lead in sustainable crop and animal production systems and resource management.
