MSc Sustainable Food Systems
Bicol University and University of Liverpool are partnering to develop a dual academic programme on MSc in Sustainable Food Systems (MSc-SFS). The programme aims to train professionals to acquire competencies and interdisciplinary knowledge of food systems, addressing sustainable intensification, supply chain resilience and an understanding of consumer behaviour and nutrition. Commencing in 2018, the two-year master’s provides opportunities for specialised technical advancement toward sustaining linked bio-resource systems on land and water.
The well-equipped facilities and high-quality advising from the two universities will be suitable in providing excellent experience for each student in conducting the research project. A successful MSc candidate is granted two separate degrees, MSc-SFS from BU and MSc in Advanced Biological Science (Sustainable Food Systems) (ABS) from UoL, upon completion of requirements through aligned assessment criteria. Delivered through self-directed learning (e.g., online modules and assessment), the MSc-SFS courses are studied in the context of climate change while the MSc-ABS focuses on advanced research competencies and skills.
