The MSc Aquaculture, Environment and Society (ACES) offers specialised training to deliver highly skilled graduates capable of addressing the challenge of food provision for a growing world population.
Food security is of global importance and, in the face of declining resources, aquaculture will have an increasingly demand for people with in-depth knowledge and practical expertise to enable this major industry to produce nutritious, high-quality and affordable foods. Graduates will be capable of addressing these challenges and will have exciting international career opportunities.
The sustainable development of the aquaculture industry in Europe has become essential for improving the competitiveness of this sector internationally. There are many major scientific, technological and social obstacles, however to overcome.
Relevant degree in an environmental or social science subject; basic French is recommended but not essential for Semester 2 study.
