About the Minor

The Food Studies Minor provides a holistic and broadly interdisciplinary examination of food’s central place in the human experience. The Minor is designed to enhance and give balance—with a focus—to the experience of students pursuing majors in a wide variety of programs across the university. The Minor combines classroom and experiential work allowing students from a range of disciplines to gain valuable hands-on experience, through opportunities to work on the Urban Farm, to utilize community connections and conduct service-learning with local hunger and relief efforts, or to document a variety of regional, occupational, and ethnic foodways.
