Certificate in Food Studies

The Certificate in Food Studies is designed for those who are interested in studying food issues at the local, regional, national and global scale.

For cultures world-wide, life rotates around food – it is the mortar that binds communities together. It connects us today to where we came from in the past. It is at both local and global, personal and universal.

Studying food is not just about nutrition, agriculture and gastronomy but about how it is produced, consumed and disposed of.

If you have questions about the ethics of eating or the impact of food on the environment or how certain foodways affect your current culinary traditions, this is the course for you.
