The University of Agriculture in Krakow derives its experience from the intellectual heritage and tradition of the Jagiellonian University. At this very University, agronomical and forestry sciences developed since 1890 and young people were educated with particular regard to their patriotic upbringing. From the moment when the Study of Agronomy was founded at the Jagiellonian University, agriculture has been permanently taught at the university level. Over the whole history of these studies, the subsequent generations of professors followed a common guiding principle, i.e. bringing up young people in reverence for civil liberties and ethical rules. For such an attitude, the members of academic staff often suffered repressive measures and some were even deprived of the right to teach. The current educational offer comprises 32 main fields with 65 specializations, there are about 9 thousand students enrolled in all types of studies. The University offers also postgraduate programs for Master's Diploma holders.
