Science at Oxford, 1914-1939

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the developments in the teaching of agriculture and forestry at Oxford University in England from 1914 to 1939. Agriculture at Oxford was often seen as a mere technical craft of occupation and regarded as a soft option for those not interested in serious academic work. A pass degree for agriculture was instigated only in 1919 and an honours degree in rural economy was only launched in 1937. The case for forestry is almost the same as that for agriculture. It was elevated to an honours school only in 1945.

Keywords:   Oxford University, agriculture, forestry, rural economy, honours degree, pass degree, England
