||Ph.D. in Agricultural Extension
The Department of Agricultural Sciences (DAS) is making earnest efforts aiming at supplementing, supporting and re-enforcing extension services and offering agriculture related programs at different levels.
Agriculture progress in most developing countries has mainly involved an increase in the production of staple crops, the introduction of industrial crops and development of livestock production.
At present, higher education in agriculture is imparted by four formal agricultural universities in Pakistan, which are not catering in-service personnel. AIOU conducted a survey to get an idea about the higher education in Agricultural Extension, Livestock Management, Forestry Extension & Rural Development and received a positive response from candidates who could not improve their qualification from formal Agricultural Universities for one or other reason and are now working in different governmental departments and NGOs.
The minimum requirement for admission to PhD in Agricultural Extension shall be M.Sc (Hons) Agricultural Extension with first division or 3:00 GPA
MSc (Hons) Agriculture degree with first division with deficiency courses. The deficiency courses will be given by PhD admission committee to those candidates whose basic eligible degree is other than Agricultural Extension specialization from approved courses of MSc (Hons) Agricultural Extension Program.
Admission will be made as per HEC criteria.
All rules of BASR/AIOU regarding MS/MPhil/PhD will apply to PhD Agricultural Extension Program.
Selection of the candidates will be made strictly on the basis of merit/criteria laid down by the Department/ University.
