Full time & Part time September MSc Full-time: 12 months | Part-time: 24 months

About the course

Sustainable Food Systems are essential to ensure that all people across the world have access to safe, nutritious and affordable food. There are many current challenges to ensuring this food security and hundreds of millions of people experience malnutrition and the health issues associated with insufficient food. These challenges will intensify over coming years in the face of global population growth, climate change and increased demands on land, water and energy. Intensification of agriculture to meet these challenges must be achieved in a way that is sustainable, preserves biodiversity and does not damage the environment. In contrast, we are experiencing, at the same time, a different global health crisis arising from over-consumption of food, but often also malnourished, with rising levels of obesity and associated increases in ill health and death.
