The Master of Food Systems and Gastronomy is the only program of its kind in Australia. Designed to empower you to become an agent of positive change in the food system, this two-year postgraduate program investigates the challenges and pleasures of food systems past, present and future. Explore how ethics, politics, culture, ecology and food industry practices can impact and transform food systems, for better or worse. Build individual and collaborative skills and develop your confidence in advanced research, advocacy and communication.
Graduates will be recognised as innovative professionals able to effectively participate in the public debates and policy solutions for transforming the modern food system. The Institute's unique and extensive food networks help ensure that graduates are well positioned to take up careers in food-related areas of government policy, education, community services, media and marketing, tourism and event development. This program is designed for those wishing to meaningfully contribute to food system transformation.
The Master of Food Systems and Gastronomy allows you to establish yourself as an authority and an agent of change in an industry that demands innovation and collaboration.

The current food system and its flaws are inherently political, ethical and ecological issues. The Master of Food Systems and Gastronomy provides great insight into the food system through many lenses including these but does not discount that with food comes the pleasure of eating. This course provides the opportunity to become a positive change within the food system and I hope to do exactly that through the urban and community sectors.
