ABOUT THE PROGRAMME
The Center for Agroecology, Water and Resilience are pleased to announce the launch of our new MSc in Agroecology, Water and Food Sovereignty. The programme will commence in September 2018, and recruitment will open in early April 2018.
The new MSc, which is structured according to the thematic pillars of our Centre’s research, will be multi- and transdisciplinary course introducing students to a range of different approaches to foster equitable and sustainable food and water systems.
In the context of wide-ranging and persistent global challenges to food and water security, resilience, including climate change, malnutrition and ecological degradation, this course will equip students with cutting edge knowledge in the field to enable them to critically understand the complex interactions between social and natural systems, between scientific and non-scientific knowledge, and between politics and food and water system outcomes.
The programme is designed for students from a range of disciplines, converging on agriculture, water and food systems from complementary angles that include physical and natural sciences, geography, social sciences and humanities, economics, and political sciences.
