Master in Food, Society and International Food Governance

UOC Universitat Oberta de Catalunya
Campus Full time October 2015 Spain Barcelona New June 19th

The way food is produced, processed and what is eaten has changed significantly over time. Whereas it is likely that our great-grandparents ate predominantly local and seasonal foods, today, it is estimated that the average meal travels over 2,400 km, from field to fork. [+]

Master Degrees in Management. Master in Food, Society and International Food Governance Presentation The way food is produced, processed and what is eaten has changed significantly over time. Whereas it is likely that our great-grandparents ate predominantly local and seasonal foods, today, it is estimated that the average meal travels over 2,400 km, from field to fork. As our food is transported around the world, it is subject to myriad rules and regulations. Food plays a central role in our societies, cultures, economies and personal lives, but few understand how food makes it to our plates. The Master's in Food, Society and International Food Governance clarifies this process. This programme is designed for individuals interested in enhancing their understanding and analysis of agriculture and food policy, and increasing their understanding of the social, cultural and economic factors that influence and shape the development and enforcement of agriculture governance. This combination presents an opportunity to explore connections between the historical, political, scientific, strategic and ethical considerations involved in the organization of food policy and agriculture internationally. The programme trains students to identify and generate solutions for just and sustainable food systems. It attracts a diversity of learners from professionals to those just starting their careers. All of our students share an interest in the organization of food systems and in food governance. The Master's is made up of two mandatory Specialisations, two elected Specialisations and a Final Research Project. A Specialisation is a 4 month, 15 ECTS credit course made up of a series of modules (usually 3 or 4). The Specialisations can be taken independently or as part of the Master's. Mandatory Specialisations: Food Systems Analysis International Agri-Food Policy Elective Specialisations: Food and Society Food Regulation (with MSU's IFLR) Food Security: Assessment and Action (with FAO) Impact Assessment of Food Security Progammes Understanding the Right to Food Final Research Project: The Master's in Food, Society and International Food Governance provides you with an opportunity to pursue a research topic in your area of interest. You may collaborate with your employer to develop a project or you may opt to undertake an independent research project. A UOC advisor must approve your research question and will work with you to carry out the research in an appropriate and timely fashion. This Final Research Project (6 or 9 ECTS) is required to complete the Master's in Food, Society and International Food Governance and is to be completed over the duration of the Master's programme. In general, research will be multi-disciplinary and will have a practical application. The Final Research Project will be evaluated by an Academic Committee. The Committee can include a mentor from your company or organization. Agreements with industry on confidentiality are always strictly taken into account. Students must defend their project. This can be done virtually (as long as it is synchronous) or in person. Completing the Final Research Project is a major task that requires patience and dedication. We will work with you to make it manageable and make sure that you acquire the knowledge and skills necessary to excel at the task. Objectives To provide students with the tools and knowledge to analyse and understand: Food systems and their role in society. How food and agriculture are regulated nationally and internationally. How agencies and institutions regulate agriculture and food nationally and internationally. To provide a framework for the exchange of knowledge, experiences, programmes and viewpoints among players, including other universities, researchers, professionals, civil service, private sector and government. To develop a comprehensive understanding of food systems in a local, regional and global context. To develop awareness of the role that food and food policy play across cultures, historically and in contemporary societies. To develop an understanding of the relationships between economics, environment, society, culture and agri-food policy. To develop a comprehensive understanding of international agriculture and food regulatory agencies. To develop the capacity to critically analyse and address issues of governance within food systems.
