The Faculty of Agriculture and Food Sciences in Sarajevo proudly bears the name of the oldest secular institution in the domain of higher education in Bosnia and Herzegovina. On March 21st, 1940, the Ministry of Education of the Kingdom of Yugoslavia issued a legally valid decree to found the Faculty of Agriculture and Forestry in Sarajevo as a separate faculty with two departments, Department of Agriculture and Department of Forestry. Classes at the faculty started by the end of January 1941 and they lasted until the outbreak of war in April that same year. Although the authorities of the Independent State of Croatia never officially dismissed the Faculty, it was devastated and consequently closed until the end of the Second World War and the liberation of country.

Today, the Faculty offers postgraduate programmes in 12 different fields: Agriculture, Fruit Growing, Wine Growing, Plant protection-phytomedicine, Domestic Animals Nutrition, Agricultural and Food Industry Economics, Plant Products Technology, Animal Products Technology, Sustainable Soil Management, Food and Drinks Quality Control, Growing of Vegetables in Protected Area and Production and use of flowers and ornamental plants. As of the academic year 2008/2009, the Faculty introduced Graduate (Master's) programmes, designed to conform to the standards of the Bologna process.
