Descrizione

The European Master in Agricultural, Food and Environmental Policy Analysis 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 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. The European Master offers a two-year academic curriculum with integrated and advanced theoretical, methodological and empirical courses.

Il meglio My name is Andrea and I was an AFEPA student from 2010-2012 so I´m the first generation graduate. I was born in Slovakia. After Bachelor studies at the Slovak University of Agriculture (Nitra, Slovakia), I decided to apply for AFEPA. My destinations were Uppsala and Budapest. ¿What's the best? Firstly, the friendship and cultural sharing. I met some great people during those two years and they made my life special. In fact, they also changed me. Everything passed so quickly and now (six months after everything is over) my mind is pulsing with a strange feeling of nostalgia. Secondly, the professional background. I found out in which direction I want to lead my life and what I want to do. I got a real passion for rural development issues, specially related to the Central European region from where I come from and where I was born. Thirdly, the independence and personal development. I’ve learnt to COOK! I’ve learnt to manage my monthly budget and I’ve learnt to take care of myself hundreds/thousands kilometers away from home.

Programma

The European Master in Agricultural, Food and Environmental Policy Analysis is a two-year programme of 120 ECTS credits. The academic programme consists of a number of compulsory courses for 30 ECTS credits, a number of optional courses for 40 ECTS credits within at least three different subject areas, a number of supplementary courses for 15 ECTS credits, two short summer schools for 5 ECTS credits and a thesis for 30 ECTS credits. Table 1 lists the components of the programme.

Students are associated with a total of two of the five universities participating in the AFEPA consortium. In general students spend the first academic year on one of the three universities (SLU, UBonn, UCL) which offer the core courses in microeconomics and quantitative methods. The second academic year is in general spent in one of the four other universities. However, when indicated, students may be allowed to spend only one semester in a second university, or spend the second year in two different universities.

Both at the end of first and second years all master students are gathered at one of the participating universities for a summer school consisting of a two-week programme of workshops, lectures and field trips. At the end of the first year of study students present a research proposal, and at the end of the second year their Master thesis for discussion by fellow students and participating faculty.
