Overview

The Agricultural, Food and Environmental Policy Analysis programme from 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.

AFEPA is a master programme offered in collaboration between four partner universities in four countries. Students spend their first year at one of the partner universities and their second year at another of the partner universities.

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.

Programme Structure

Course Overview:

  • 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.
