This top French university is offering a Masters degree course in 'drinking, eating and living'
A lot of us like to live a life that is primarily centered around eating, drinking, and living.
While every human being needs to eat and drink but, some take it as a lifestyle choice and consider themselves the masters of eating, drinking, and socialising.
It's easy to come across a foodie or a bibulous fellow. You might have one in your family or friends circle.
But now, a top university in France is taking the lifestyle of drinking, eating, and living very seriously. They are taking it so seriously that a Masters degree course is being offered for the same.
Yes, a person who enjoys drinking, eating, and living can become a Masters degree holder from Sciences Po Lille, one of the most prestigious political science schools in France, according to reports.
The course which is called BMV - short for ‘boire, manger, vivre’ - covers a wide range of topics about food, drinks and 'living'.
The course includes ‘gastro-diplomacy’, food tech, and fighting sexism in the kitchen, reported The Telegraph.
The unique program has already kicked off with lecturer Benôit Lengaigne teaching lessons on ‘terrestrial foods’, the report added.
Besides writing essays on lifestyle, plant-based alternatives to meat, history of farming, and other topics, students also attend conferences on food and drinks.
Among other things, students assume the role of TV journalists, food reviewers, and bosses of food delivery companies to quiz one another about quality and working conditions.
According to Lengaigne, the first batch of 15 students had a good laugh in the early days of the Masters course.
He stressed that the course is 'one of the best ways to ignite 20-year-old students’ passion for changing or saving the world through their future profession.’
"It is a master’s course that unites us around one passion: the world of gastronomy and food. Given the climate emergency, food will be at the heart of global challenges," course ambassador studnet Clémence Ricart told Le Monde newspaper.
