Minor: Food Studies
(FS)

The Minor in Food Studies provides a holistic and broadly interdisciplinary examination of food's central place in the human experience. The Minor combines classroom and experiential work allowing students from a range of disciplines to gain valuable hands-on experience through opportunities to work in the Urban Farm, to utilize community connections and conduct service-learning with local hunger or relief efforts, or to document a variety of regional, occupational, and ethnic foodways. Because food plays a central role in our communities and the relationship of communities to the larger world, the Minor is particularly well-suited to promote student civic engagement.
