Food and Development MA

Великобритания

Что я буду изучать?

Food is a cross-cutting development issue that concerns hunger, food insecurity, malnutrition, environment sustainability, power, politics, social justice, and cultural identity. It is about the global and the local and the hard trade-offs that the globalisation era has brought about.

The MA Food and Development draws on wide-ranging expertise of faculty at both IDS and School of Global Studies at the University of Sussex (where you will be based). You will gain an advanced understanding of the complex relationship between food and development. We build your analytical and practical skills, improving your ability to engage critically with issues such as:

  • food and nutrition security
  • sustainable food systems
  • value chains and corporate power
  • agri-food technology and its contestations

Our faculty have extensive knowledge and direct field experience. And our guest speakers – from government bodies, international organisations, NGOs, and local food networks and movements – introduce you to contemporary policy debates and practices.

Who is the degree for?

We welcome applicants with a broad range of career trajectories. Successful applicants will typically have at least one year’s practical experience in development alongside an interest in critical academic enquiry. Previous experience and engagement with issues relating to food in development (e.g., food security, nutrition, food systems, food policy and regulation, food rights or food sovereignty) is an advantage.

Assessment criteria

You’ll be assessed through term papers, coursework assignments, presentations, exams, practical exercises, and a 10,000-word dissertation.

Career opportunities

Throughout the course we focus on developing both your academic and practical skills – including analytical, writing and presentation skills. You’ll also gain a thorough understanding of social science research methods and gain independent research skills.

We expect our graduates to become specialists and advisers in food and development issues worldwide, working for:

  • governments
  • international development agencies
  • civil-society organisations
  • social movements engaged with food-related themes
