Do you want to generate positive change within the food system? Designed to inspire and transform, Australia’s only Master of Food Systems and Gastronomy explores the challenging problems facing contemporary food systems and cultures.
Students will apply their deep understanding of food production, distribution, policy and consumption to issues of contestation within the food system including social inequity, concentration of power, urban and regional land-use and planning, local economies and citizen health and wellbeing.
Subjects are designed to build individual and collaborative problem solving skills and develop students’ capacity to apply interdisciplinary thinking to the problems facing modern systems of food production, provisioning and consumption. Subjects include Gastronomic Discourse and Culture, Food and Urbanism: Past, Present and Future, Taste, Terroir and Place and The Politics of Gastronomy.
Students will have the opportunity to apply their knowledge and experience to real-world government, industry and community settings via elective options and the unique networks that William Angliss Institute engages with.
Refine your critical research and analytical skills as you examine shifting gastronomic narratives and their intersection with public debates concerning the politics, ethics, cultures and ecologies of food system change.
