Master's Resilient Farming and Food Systems

The Master Resilient Farming and Food Systems focusses on developing the food systems of the future, that balance human needs for food production and security with natural resource use and environmental protection. The programme has an interdisciplinary approach, combing knowledge on agroecology with the societal and sociological context of food production, from a local to a global scale. This makes the programme accessible and challenging for undergraduates from both natural and social science backgrounds.
