Food System Sciences, Master of Science (M.Sc.)
The complex world of food is of great importance for many areas of society. The ingredients of food have an immediate impact on human health, while production methods and supply chain management additionally contribute to the health of the environment. Novel food products seek legislation to make the food system more sustainable and healthy. The Food System Sciences Master’s degree course at the University of Bayreuth (subject to the approval of the Bavarian State Ministry of Science and the Arts) offers an interdisciplinary programme integrating different aspects of the food system, allowing students to gain insights into the interfaces between Food Chemistry, Human Physiology, Food Law, and the Bioeconomy. This interdisciplinary basis followed by in-depth specializations in one of the food system areas will allow you to make a significant contribution to ensure a sufficient, high quality food supply for the growing world population.
Food systems are becoming increasingly more complex. To facilitate sustainable supply for generations to come, future decision-makers need to understand present interdependencies between the various aspects influencing food production, distribution, and consumption. This study program focusses specifically on these interdependencies to gain a holistic understanding and enable sustainable and resilient systems in the future.
