Food is one of the richest aspects of cultures and societies. Food is increasingly seen as something far greater than its simple quotidian nature, becoming a vehicle for local promotion and development, linked to understandings of economies which, despite being immersed in global processes, are still local and regional.
From this basic premise, food should be understood as a transversal element affecting all aspects and stages of life. These components are intimately linked to territory, local identity, development and heritage.
The Master's Degree in Food, Culture and Territory explores and develops these points of connection from an international and interdisciplinary perspective. It presents a multidimensional experience in terms of the learning environment, interactions and materials.
The programme identifies social processes that link food to people and places. It is designed for those interested in learning, whether professionals or those making first steps in their career. All our students share an interest in food, territory, heritage and local development.
The programme attracts those who want to work and specialise in the food sector or those who want to improve their knowledge and skills in order to improve their professional prospects.

The UOC is an open university which means that even if you do not have a high school diploma or university degree you can still take our courses.
However, to be eligible for the Master's Degree you must have a recognised university degree. If you do not have a recognised university degree then you will receive an equivalent certificate instead of a degree.
The course materials and teaching language is English. A strong grasp of English is required for this programme.
Once the overall assessment process has been successfully completed, the UOC will issue 60 ECTS credits and a Master's in Food, Culture and Territory to those participants with an accredited university qualification that is valid in Spain.
Should you not have such a qualification, a Food, Culture and Territory Certificate will be issued.
