The Food Studies program takes a multi-level and holistic approach to food, from production through consumption. Beyond a core, the curriculum offers two concentrations: 1) Food Politics and Governance; and, 2) Community Food Systems and Gastronomy. The major provides excellent preparation for further graduate studies in social science and legal and policy approaches to food. Also, students with this major might seek employment with government agencies at all levels dealing with food and agriculture issues; food oriented non-governmental organizations that work on sustainability and food security issues; as well as work with food processing, preparation and distribution firms.
