The AUR Master of Arts in Food Studies examines the connections between the production, distribution, and consumption of food, focusing on sustainability criteria. This is a cross-disciplinary program exploring the current practices of sustainable food production and consumption. Experiential learning at a small scale farm in the periurban area of Rome is an integral part of the program.
Focus is given to investigating how we affect the Earth’s resources with our food choices and how policies and frameworks are formed and implemented at regional, national and sub-national levels by the public sector, business organizations, not-for-profit organizations, and the food industry.
