The Master of Science with options to Agronomic, Veterinary, is a program of 169 credits of flexible modality, tutorial with focus in the collaborative research and centered in the interests of the student, who from his entrance opts for one of the following two areas of knowledge : Agronomic Sciences or Veterinary Sciences.
Students who choose the Area of ​​Agronomic Sciences develop a research project on Agro-Food Production and Safety or on Management of Agroecosystems and Natural Resources. For their part, students who opt for the area of ​​Veterinary Sciences develop a research project related to Animal Production and Health. During the four academic semesters, the student designs and develops his thesis research, presents semiannual progress seminars, attends different compulsory and optional subjects and carries out complementary activities that are forming him as a researcher and specialist in the area. All students perform part of their academic and research activities outside the UAA, as a requirement for complementary activities and academic mobility. Student mobility is supported by UAA and generally backed by some interinstitutional collaboration agreement. At the end of their program, each student generates at least one research and / or technological development product derived from their thesis, in collaboration with their Tutorial Committee.
