Food, Space and Society

This course is specifically aimed at those people wishing to gain expertise on contemporary food geographies. Students 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 their detailed knowledge of key tensions and debates related to food security, justice and sustainability, students will be able to develop suitable approaches to analysing and explaining trends and developments as well as to discuss appropriate policy responses. A further core feature of the course is the focus on the latest social science research around food, in which the teaching team has a world-renowned expertise.

Entry requirements

Applicants should normally hold a 1st or 2nd Class Honours degree in an appropriate subject such as geography, sociology, politics or economics or an appropriate professional qualification. Students whose 1st language is not English require IELTS 6.5 or equivalent.
