The Waite and Roseworthy campuses are recognised as centres of excellence in agricultural science.
While the majority of the degree is based at the Waite campus, education in livestock production and the practical component of agronomy is based at the Roseworthy Campus.
  This reputation underpins the Bachelor of Agricultural Sciences program, which trains students in the physical, biological, technological and economic bases of modern agricultural systems.
 The program is designed to demonstrate how scientific and economic principles are applied to manage agricultural systems and the natural resources on which these systems depend.
