Sample 1st Paragraph Animal Science and Fisheries

A hardworking student from Nigeria, I will be completing my MBA next year in England and this has prepared me to think about my passion, agriculture and Animal Sciences, in terms of their business potential in Africa. Pleased that both public and private sectors of my country are finally beginning to de-emphasize to some extant oil extraction and to again invest time and resources in agriculture, I seek to combine the strengths of my undergraduate education and previous professional experience in Nigeria with the MBA that I am currently earning, so that I might excel as a graduate student in your particularly distinguished MSC Program in Animal Science and Fisheries at XXXX University.

Statements of Excellence for Admission to Graduate School in Food Science

I am especially interested in contemporary ethical issues of food, agricultural and life sciences, and particularly policy making in these areas. I have had the privilege of working on behalf of members of professional organisations focusing on food and agriculture such as  the European Society for Agriculture and Food Ethics, the Agriculture, Food and Human Values Society (USA), and the European Federation of Biotechnology.

I particularly enjoy engaging with the issue of global famine, the care for a farming class that is able to keep its head above water in a decent way, and a fair trade system that does not throw up unnecessary barriers for newcomers or small market participants and that promotes good nutrition. Famine continues to be a widespread phenomenon that violates human rights, causing nearly a billion people to suffer from hunger or malnutrition. At the same time, deliberate hunger, abundance, and obesity are prevalent in the Western world. Both issues refer to the social and cultural aspects of food. Scientific and technological developments like genetic modification and functional food also play an increasingly important role; almost every bite that we take is determined by scientific developments.

Building a Culture of Food Safety

I have read several systematic treatments of philosophical and ethical aspects of food (consumption and production). May we eat just anything? Can we do everything with animals, even genetic modification? If not, how can we regulate those processes so that they lead to optimum animal welfare while at the same time producing optimum taste? The production of food also causes environmental pollution – does the fight against hunger have priority over the care of the environment? The care of the environment, animal welfare, and the quality of food should be in a certain harmony, but that is far from granted and hardly easy to achieve. These factors are often in conflict with each other, and a balance will thus need to be searched for.

An extra difficulty is that scientific information is often contradictory, or that it relies on statistical probabilities that are difficult to translate into everyday certitudes. All of these factors deserve attention, but it is the mix that is most important.

Sample 1st Paragraph Food Science Masters, Indian Applicant

I suppose for many Western students, the choice to study Food Science arises from a theoretical interest in this area or a particular academic bent. I come from a society however, India, in which the need to make advances in this field is much more personal. I do not need to travel far to see those who suffer acutely from science’s real but limited advances in Food Science to date and whom I seek to assist by extending its application to the direct improvement of their lives.

I am convinced that my academic record, research experience and genuine passion for this specialty equip me both to add value to the program and ultimately to assist in successful projects that will change many lives.
