MSc Gastronomy and Food Sustainability

Course Description


There has never been a more important time to consider how food production and consumption affects our world. The agri-food industry needs smart, innovative people and approaches to help balance overcoming challenges like climate change, food security and diet-related diseases with producing food people still want to eat. Our Gastronomy and Food Sustainability postgraduate course will help you develop both the general and specific knowledge to meet the needs of the future industry.

Expanding from a point of gastronomy, this course offers a unique perspective acknowledging food as a culturally embedded source of pleasure and enrichment, rather than just nutrition or commodity. You will learn about the impacts of food production and consumption on the societal, environmental and economic stability and development of domestic and wider markets, while the philosophy, science and business of food are represented to reflect the considerations for nourishment, pleasure and sustainability.
