Description

The European Master's in Agricultural Food and Environmental Policy Analysis (AFEPA) at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences aims at providing a high quality education in designing and assessing public policies targeted to the agricultural and food sector as well as the rural environment. This European Master's responds to the increasing need to better understand and anticipate the various and often complex socio-economic and environmental effects of these policies, either in a functioning market economy as in the European Union or in economies in a development or transition phase.

Future

Recipients of this European Master's are qualified to design and assess public policies oriented to the agricultural and food sector, rural areas and natural resources, as well as provide sound and relevant policy recommendations for a more sustainable development. They are qualified to take responsibilities in international, national and regional agencies, non-governmental organisations, consultancy firms, professional organisations and private companies.

Course Content

The European Master's offers a two-year academic curriculum with integrated and advanced theoretical and applied courses in economics and quantitative methods as well as in agricultural and trade policy, environmental and natural resource policy and rural development policy. To connect theory and methodology to practice, a problem solving project is developed and presented as a Master’s thesis at the end of the two-year curriculum. The student will study at two of the partner universities and be awarded a double degree.

AFEPA is jointly organised by five leading European educational and research institutions: the Corvinius University of Budapest (CUB) in Hungary, the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU) in Sweden, the Rheinische-Friedrich-Wilhelms Universität Bonn (UBonn) in Germany, the Université catholique de Louvain (UCL) in Belgium and the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC) in Spain. These five partner universities are recognised worldwide for the quality of their educational programmes and scientific achievements in agricultural, environmental and economic sciences.
