Course content

The MSc in Food Politics and Sustainability will prepare you to pursue an academic career in food studies; enhancing the skills of those already working in the sector and developing prospective practitioners and policy-makers to understand more deeply the interplay between food security, justice and sustainability. The course is specifically aimed at those wishing to gain expertise in contemporary food geographies.

You will gain insights into the ways in which food-related problems are defined, and the scope for applying cutting-edge policy and practical solutions to the challenges that an increasingly complex food system is raising for governments, researchers and regulatory bodies.

The course links together theoretical debates about food at different spatial scales with the practical dimensions of policy formulation and implementation. Based on your detailed knowledge of key tensions and debates related to food security, justice and sustainability, you will be able to develop suitable approaches to analysing and explaining trends and developments as well as to discuss appropriate policy responses.

The course addresses three key dimensions:

  • Principles and processes - how policies may (or may not) achieve more sustainable food systems;
  • Comparative case studies - comparative and in-depth analysis of food sustainability, justice and security issues in different geographic and governance contexts;
  • Research training - the development of methodological skills for undertaking both independent and team-based research on food.
