The Food Studies minor brings together the social and natural sciences to explore urban and sustainable agriculture, scientific aspects of food, food security issues, and topics related to food cultures, food politics and food access. The Food Studies minor will enable students to pursue an interdisciplinary minor that complements their major field of study. This minor will give students the practical expertise in Geographic Information Systems (GIS), horticulture, urban agriculture and scholarship in issues of food access and food justice to engage in and contribute to debates about urban and community food systems, both locally and globally. In addition, the Food Studies minor will offer students the opportunity to pursue service-learning facilitated by the Steans Center for Community-based Service Learning.
Please note that students can complete no more than two courses from any one discipline. If you have any questions about this requirement, please contact Professor Euan Hague (GEO) or Professor Liam Heneghan (ENV).
