Sustainable Food Systems


We all eat. But what we eat—and where we get what we eat—significantly impacts our world. The sustainable food systems program enables you to investigate the challenges of the current global food system by exploring the cultural meanings of food and the social and physical conditions under which we grow and consume foods. You’ll also acquire the skills needed to help build a more sustainable world—skills that easily translate to complement any major. Internships are available at area organic farms and farm markets, as well as with the Maya Mountain Research Farm in Belize.
