Food Systems, Nutrition, and Health Major

The Food Systems, Nutrition, and Health Major, leading to a Bachelor of Arts, is interdisciplinary and exposes students to the complex intersections and relationships among food and culture, economics, the environment, labor, policy, population health, and social justice. The food systems core courses teach students how the various drivers and components of food systems can affect nutrition and health.

Graduates will have competency in food systems, nutrition, public health, social and economic equity, and sustainability, as well as strong liberal arts preparation in intellectual and practical skills like inquiry, analysis, communication, critical thinking, and problem-solving, all of which enables them to address the impact of food systems on food and nutrition security and population health, on local, regional, and global scales.
