Sustainable Agriculture and Food Security MSc

The prominence of this subject is driven by an increasing global population, pressure on non-renewable or scarce resources, and a need to increase food production whilst minimizing the impact on the environment.

We will tackle these issues in a global and local context, while also critically evaluating the assumptions that drive research and scholarship on global food security. The Sustainable Agriculture and Food Security master's covers all aspects of food security as outlined by the Global Food Security programme, a multi-agency plan involving the main UK public sector funders of research and training related to food.
