Course Description

Gastronomy and Food Studies



This is the first Masters programme in Ireland to offer graduates a solid underpinning in the three pillars of Gastronomy & Food Studies: History, Society, and Practice. The food landscape in Ireland and indeed globally is under ever-increasing scrutiny from a wide range of commentators and this programme will satisfy the growing interest in Food Studies.

By amalgamating shared learning with focused networking opportunities, the programme will develop transferrable, interpersonal communication skills whilst encouraging creative and critical thinkers who will become life-long learners and advocates for Irish food and international food culture.

The programme will examine the key forces and policies that influence the modern food system by investigating the impact of history on contemporary foodways.
