Learn more about the Food Studies Minor by watching this closed captioned video.

Food Studies minor uses “food”—its production, preparation, sharing, consumption, and disposal—as a lens for understanding individual, socio-cultural, and global issues. The study of food’s role in multiple complex aspects of life builds bridges across all areas of the academy, including: Arts, Anthropology, Environment and Sustainability, Folklore and Mythology, Geography, History, Humanities, Law, Psychology, Public Health, Public Policy, and other fields.

Through interdisciplinary courses and a capstone experience, students in the Food Studies minor will acquire a unique understanding of Food Studies and emerge with a new intellectual framework for understanding this expanding area of study.
