The MA in Food Security and Food Justice
The 2016/17 academic year will be the second year of our very successful MA in Food Security and Food Justice. The programme is unique in a number of ways:
•International, interdisciplinary, and multi-scalar perspectives on the issues inherent when striving for food-security and food-justice.
•Professional and entrepreneurial skills and a work-based dissertation aimed at enhancing the employability of those wishing to go into employment after completion of the degree.
•Research training needed to pursue a PhD
•A core field course to Hong Kong (included in the fees), which allows students to contextualise their learning in a real location as well as engage with a variety of people and organisation located within the SAR.
•Flexible options that enable the student to shape their training in ways that suit their interests.
