Today the journey our food takes from field to fork is increasingly complex; a route shaped by politics, economics, agriculture, aesthetics and more. Queen Margaret University is now offering a programme of food study which reflects this complexity to form a contemporary understanding of food culture, systems and communications. Our MSc Gastronomy remains unique in the UK in its comprehensive approach to the study of food, and has been developed in direct response to Scotland’s changing food-scape.
As issues of food economy, dietary health and agricultural impact are increasingly meeting national and international headlines, the timely and important nature of cultivating such an understanding is evident. As well as rigorous academic content, access to a national network for food change and a great student community, the MSc Gastronomy also offers students:
- Innovative research opportunities in a burgeoning field,
- Direct experience of Scotland’s food system and food culture, from big industry to artisan production, high end hospitality to food waste redistribution,
- An annual international study trip to connect with the global food movement.
This year, we have fully funded positions available for Scottish residents and we want to make sure this opportunity isn’t missed by those who could really benefit. Applications are currently being taken for a September 7th start with interviews on August 20th. (alternative dates available)
