MSc Food Security and Sustainable Agriculture

Interdisciplinary programme with research-led teaching in molecular plant pathology, plant sciences, microbiology, grassland management, soil science, and sustainable farming systems. The combination of expertise in both arable and pastureland systems ensures a truly rounded learning experience. Leading scientists also provide valuable input on land use and economic practices in rural areas. The curriculum of this degree is designed to address critical shortages of experts capable of working in government agencies, agriculture, and the food industry as researchers, advisers, policy developers, and managers. The programme provides opportunities to gain industrial and practical experience and observe food security issues first-hand during field trips.

Offered 12 months full-time.
