MSc Agriculture Programmes
The Robert H. Smith Faculty of Agriculture, Food and Environment was named for the late Robert Hilton Smith (1928-2009), a great friend and benefactor. Due to his unmatched philanthropy and support, the Faculty has undergone dramatic changes and development in recent years.
The Faculty of Agriculture, established in 1942, has been one of the major factors contributing to successful settlement in Israel and to the development of its remarkable achievements in agriculture.
This has been due to leading research in agriculture and to the education of generations of students specializing in plant or animal sciences, in health and disease, as well as in the economic aspects of agriculture and rural development. More recently, consequent to the development of the Institute of Biochemistry, the faculty became the leading academic authority in Israel for human food and nutrition.
