Food Studies

The College of Letters & Science cooperates with the College of Health Sciences to offer an undergraduate certificate in Food Studies. The certificate is designed to help students become proficient at:

  1. Investigating and analyzing food systems and practices in a variety of cultural, social, and geographical settings;
  2. Presenting their critical reflections on the forces that surround these systems and practices in both written and oral form;
  3. Using information (statistical, textual, first-hand accounts, etc.) as a basis for formulating plans for personally and socially responsible action pertinent to local and global food and health; and
  4. Becoming active in the community by participating in activities that develop responsible and sustainable practices, promote cross-cultural understanding, and help people in disparate professions or academic fields understand the relationships the study of food has with their own specializations.

The program is administered by an advisory committee composed of faculty members from both the College of Letters & Science and the College of Health Sciences. For additional information, see the Food Studies Certificate description in the Inter-School/College Programs section of this catalog.
