The programme content addresses the entire farming and food system and is interdisciplinary. Consequently, it is an alternative to programmes focusing on single components of these systems. The pedagogical approach based on experiential learning and inductive learning is similar to that of the Master's degree programme in Development Studies. The programme consists of the following: * 1. An elective introduction to agroecology: The ecology of food and farming systems (5 credits) (PAE301), Internet-based * 2. Core courses in agroecology emphasizing farming and food systems (30 credits) (PAE302). Specialization requirement The first semester consists of systems knowledge, 30 credits. After this the student can develop an area of specialization on various topics, see above, constituting 30 or 60 credits. The study programme concludes with a Master's degree thesis constituting 30 or 60 credits.
