A new master’s programme in food security will begin this September in University College Cork (UCC). The food security and management master’s is designed to develop and manage policies and programmes to tackle global food security challenges. This will include programme planning for food security, nutrition and health as well as applied research.

The MSc programme will collaborate with the Institute of Food Policy and Research Institute (IFPRI) to deliver the course. It will be the only course in Ireland specifically focused on international food security and management in the context on international development.
