Sustainable Agriculture and Food Security
The course aims to provide specialist skills and knowledge about the most important issues related to the sustainability of agricultural production and food security. The MSc is suitable if you have an interest in sustainable agriculture and food security and want to develop a broad knowledge of the subject. Sustainable agriculture and food security focuses on the availability of food now and in the future: a major concern of scientific and commercial communities world-wide. 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 minimising the impact on the environment. The course covers all aspects of food security as outlined by Global Food Security, a multi-agency programme involving the main UK public sector funders of research and training related to food.
