Why in Parma?

If you love food, our territory and its culture, if you want to defend the traditions of our land, captured in food, dishes and techniques for processing raw materials, then the course in Gastronomic Sciences is for you.  You can express your potential by studying and discovering the excellence of our regions, which is increasingly becoming a vehicle for Italian spirit and love of life around the world.

And it is worth doing it in Parma, which is part of the UNESCO network of creative cities for gastronomy, and where the first public course of study of this kind was founded.  

You can study in the centre of the Food Valley among conferences, gastronomic festivals, cooking schools and food museums, in the company of professionals who are passionate about gastronomy.

After graduation

Our degree leads to employment in food and wine research organisations, in national and regional administration, and in organisations dealing with the agri-food sector, including governmental and non-governmental associations supporting developing countries.  

A degree in Gastronomic Sciences will give you the opportunity to work in a number of fast-growing fields, both in Italy and abroad, such as the production and distribution of typical products and gastronomy, food and wine tourism, consortia for the protection and promotion of typical products, organisation of trade fairs and gastronomic events, distribution activities (from e-commerce to large-scale distribution), communication and infomediation, marketing, journalism and food and wine literature.  

This degree will give you access to second-cycle degree courses and first-level university master's degrees. At the University of Parma you will be able to find various second-cicle degree courses, in Italian or English, to perfect and expand your skills in the Food sector.
