Agricultural Science is an interdisciplinary field that encompasses essential aspects of agriculture and agronomy. Agriculture involves a holistic understanding of the techniques and efficient and careful management of resources for the sustainable production of animals and plants for human consumption. Agronomy included research and development that leads to improved production. 

In UTAR, Bachelor of Science (Honours) Agriculture Science students will learn the principles and applications of science, economics and management of animal and plant production, agribusiness, land and water management, and systems analysis. They will be introduced to the fundamental scientific concepts of agricultural production in order to understand the current issues faced by the industry as well as to develop novel technologies to assess and improve the agricultural sectors. 

 The students will be introduced to modern commercial scale farming involving agro-biodiversity, developement of higher yielding plant varieties that are tolerant to plant diseases and pests, improved fish and animal husbandry , enhancing downstream agriculture activities, and better understanding of the agro-ecosystem that promotes sustainable production. 

 There are special privileges offered only to Agricultural Science students, for instance, scholarhsip offered by agriculture-based giant corporates, such as Kuala Lumpur Kepong Berhad, United Malacca Plantation Berhad, IOI Group and Kuok Foundation. The students will have international exposure opportunity in terms of student exchange or internship in renowned agriculture related university (e.g. National Pingtung University of Science and Technology). An agriculture park is available to support students' learning in terms of field work and experiment as well. Besides, students studying Agricultural Science in UTAR will have the opportunity to interact with other biological science students.
