Food security has become a critically important issue for societies around the globe. With rapid growth in the area, there's an increasing demand for qualified experts to help create the policies and legislations that protect and govern food production and the supply chain.
This unique MSc has the scope and multidisciplinary approach to address the multiple issues surrounding food security, as well as offering an understanding of the technical, agronomic, environmental, economic and socio-political factors that influence it.
Theoretical studies are given a practical backdrop through a study tour, which provides the opportunity to apply some of the principles to real world scenarios.
The MSc Food Security degree is awarded by the University of Edinburgh.
