The Food Studies program takes a multi-level and holistic approach to food, from production through consumption. The major provides excellent preparation for further graduate studies in social science and legal and policy approaches to food. Also, students with this major might seek employment with government agencies at all levels dealing with food and agriculture issues; food oriented non-governmental organizations that work on sustainability and food security issues; as well as work with food processing, preparation and distribution firms. This concentration focus on Community Food Systems and Gastronomy. The 120-credit major includes five areas of study: Falk College requirements, a liberal arts core, a food electives. The liberal arts core is left open purposefully to allow students to sample broadly from the Arts & Science offerings. Such a liberal approach is appropriate for students majoring in food studies since it has emerged as a multidisciplinary field. The major concludes with a senior level experience requirement where students choose to complete a research project or a practicum.
