Master's Programme "Global Food, Nutrition and Health"

Our focus: One of the greatest challenges of the 21st century.

Providing our planet with a secure and sustainable supply of safe and healthy food is one of the greatest challenges of our time. Nutrient deficiency, malnutrition in its many forms, as well as the planetary, social and cultural determinants of health are major challenges of the 21st century.

These global health problems are not to be seen exclusively as challenges of medicine and the natural sciences, but also as challenges of the economy, culture, society and politics. It is therefore imperative to better understand the link between the production and supply of sufficient and safe food ("Food"), the social and cultural aspects of nutrition (“Nutrition”) and their impact on health (“Health”) from a global and interdisciplinary perspective.

The English-language Master’s degree programme in “Global Food, Nutrition and Health” provides its graduates with the skills required to deal with these global challenges. The programme takes a holistic approach, combining insights from health and nutritional sciences with an interdisciplinary social and behavioural science perspective that draws on political science, psychology and sociology, as well as economics, ethics and law.

Be part of it and apply for our master's programme! We are looking forward to receiving your application!
