About MSc Sustainable Food and Natural Resources at Centre for Alternative Technology

A flexible Masters degree designed to develop a rigorous understanding of transformational responses to the pervasive effects that economic structures and environmental change are having on diet, health, sustainability and community empowerment. The course will cover globalisation, corporate and economic control, increasing global population and the effects of industry-scale agriculture and materials production on ecosystems and our environment.

Taught at the Centre for Alternative Technology (CAT), which pioneered sustainability practice and theory in the UK, this is the first MSc course to properly integrate the social, political, economic and practical aspects of sustainable food and natural resources production. This Masters degree tackles these themes through a combination of academic study, discussion and hands-on practical work.

At CAT, we give our MSc students the knowledge, skills and experience needed to develop rewarding careers with confidence and competence. The programme draws on our expert staff and a wide selection of academics and specialist guest lecturers - people who have made exceptional contributions to environmental thinking and action.
