Description:

The Food Studies minor is an interdisciplinary approach to examine the U.S. and global food systems from production through consumption using a multi-level and holistic approach. Students take courses covering production, consumption and policy aspects of food as well as food security. The Food Studies minor is a valuable complement to a variety of majors because of the growing interest in food systems in academia and in the general public. Issues around organic production, the local food movement, genetic modification of food and nanotechnology, and food access in the U.S. and elsewhere are all covered in the minor and have potential applications in the natural sciences, business, public policy, communications and media, and the social sciences.

Admission:

To be admitted to the program, students must submit a Declaration of Minor form to their academic advisor, the minor coordinator and their home college dean’s office.

Curriculum Requirements


The program leading to a minor in Food Studies requires the completion of six courses (18-19 credits), two of which are mandatory and four of which are electives. Students should work closely with their major advisor and the Food Studies minor coordinator to ensure they are meeting the necessary requirements for both programs.
