Learning Pathways - Food & Agriculture


There is lots of interest in and debates about food and agriculture in our contemporary culture. This is evidenced by recent food crises, the evolution of foodie-dom, the popularity of cooking shows, growing alternative agricultural production and consumer movements, and the popularity of documentaries like Food Inc. This pathway is designed to engage students in these timely and important issues and to guide them toward finding food and agriculture-related courses from especially the humanities and social sciences.
