The School of Agriculture and Food Science in University College Dublin (UCD) has announced a new degree programme in Sustainable Food Systems.
The Bachelor of Science (BSc) in Sustainable Food Systems is a 4-year level 8 programme which will be available to students from September 2024.
This programme will provide students with a comprehensive understanding of the entire food chain, from on-farm production to human consumption and the scientific principles and policies underpinning it. It will explore the complex challenge of sustainably producing food to meet the nutritional requirements of a growing world population while protecting the planet’s limited natural resources.
Skills to analyse and evaluate sustainable food systems will be developed through engagement with lectures, guest lectures, peers, and an industry based internship, enabling graduates to apply the knowledge and skills acquired to practical real-world industry setting.
