Interdisciplinary Curriculum

The design of the Food Systems minor offers students an historical perspective and structural framework for studying our contemporary food system across disciplines. Students will identify and examine complex issues involving food, from soil to table, and develop knowledge and skills to become a more sustainable and responsible food citizen.

Students choose from a selection of food systems-related courses for a minimum of 18 credits. View the list of required coursework on the courses page.
