About this course

Almost one in eight people around the world are chronically undernourished. Recurrent food price spikes and socio-political unrest, climate change, land degradation and scarcity of natural resources – coupled with decline in rural communities and livelihoods – have placed food security high on the development agenda. This course is designed to meet the growing demands for professionals equipped with the knowledge, understanding, skills and attitude needed to deal with these challenges.

This course takes an interdisciplinary approach to studying food security, using insights from agroecological sciences, geography, social and political sciences, and innovation studies. The course will use research-informed teaching to explore and analyse global food security issues, the factors that affect food security outcomes, the solutions to food security problems, and the planning and execution of food security interventions.

Your study is designed to be practice-oriented and aims to enhance your employability within development organisations working on food security. This means that you will not only explore the status, drivers and solutions of global food insecurity, but also focus on how these aspects could be systematically analysed and acted upon in a real world setting. You’ll draw on examples from both developing and developed countries.

NTU has links with various universities and international development institutions such as the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO). The course pulls together staff expertise in various relevant disciplines from within the School of Animal, Rural and Environmental Sciences, and also from other schools across NTU, including the School of Arts and Humanities, the School of Social Sciences, and Nottingham Business School.

How do you study

You’ll be taught through a mixture of interactive lectures, detailed case studies, tutorials, workshops, seminars, study visits, and placements. You’ll also have opportunities to present your work to peers and academic staff. Independent learning is required, and you’ll undertake high- quality research. You’ll research your chosen topic in depth, then design and implement a relevant research project, before communicating the findings to an informed audience in a comprehensive scientific report.

Teaching is supported by our Brackenhurst Campus – a 200-hectare country estate and working farm. The campus is part of the DEFRA Environmental Stewardship scheme, which supports the effective environmental management of farm land and countryside estates. The farm includes sheep, a poultry unit, and a herd of Lincoln red beef cattle, as well as arable and protected crop production. The farm promotes sustainable land use and management, demonstrating modern farming techniques whilst achieving high conservation value.

You’ll also have access to modern, bespoke scientific facilities, teaching resources, and accommodation.
