Food is an accessible and revealing window into history, economics, culture, class, and politics. Students majoring in the Applied Food Studies bachelor’s degree program are taught to look at each of those areas using food as the common denominator. They study anthropology, ecology, history, governmental policies, and sustainability of food. Through these courses, students are gaining a perspective that may well translate into careers focused on the broader issues that impact our global relationship with food.
