Agricultural Food and Environmental Policy Analysis (AFEPA), 120 HEC

In this European Master's programme the students will learn to analyse and design policies targeted at food, agriculture and environmental sectors.

The European Master's in Agricultural Food and Environmental Policy Analysis (AFEPA) 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.
