(18 credits)

The interdisciplinary Food Studies minor provides the opportunity to investigate the cultural, biological, historical, political, environmental, and economic contexts of food in the human experience. From hunter-gatherers to industrialized farming, this minor investigates issues around food production, the local food movement, consumption, health, food insecurity, and how cultural identities are reflected through food preferences. The Food Studies minor complements a variety of programs across the university and has applications in environmental studies, health and nutrition, exercise science, hospitality, business, public policy, food management, communications, and many other careers.
