College of Liberal Arts & Social Sciences > Academics > Geography and GIS > Undergraduate > Food Studies (Minor)
The Food Studies minor brings together the social and natural sciences to explore urban and sustainable agriculture, scientific aspects of food, food security issues, and topics related to food cultures, food politics and food access. The Food Studies minor will enable students to pursue an interdisciplinary minor that complements their major field of study. This minor will give students the practical expertise in Geographic Information Systems (GIS), horticulture, urban agriculture and scholarship in issues of food access and food justice to engage in and contribute to debates about urban and community food systems, both locally and globally. In addition, the Food Studies minor will offer students the opportunity to pursue service-learning facilitated by the Steans Center for Community-based Service Learning.
Please note that no more than two courses from any department may count for the minor. Questions about the minor should be directed to Professor Maureen Sioh (Department of Geography).
