Environmental Concentration: Sustainable Food

A brief description of the undergraduate minor, concentration or certificate (1st program):

At Smith we understand that one way to make a difference in the world is to grow knowledge. That is why in 2011, after demonstrated interest by students and faculty, CEEDS announced a new Environmental Concentration in Sustainable Food. The Sustainable Food Concentration enables students to engage in an interdisciplinary exploration of food and the many issues involved in sustainability. Whether you are interested in global food distribution systems, the economics of agriculture, food cultures around the world, agriculture policy, or the various ways that gender and food intersect, you can explore your interests in a cohesive, directed, and exciting way. The Sustainable Food Concentration puts theory into practice, offering a chance to connect students with a topic integral to their surrounding community of the Pioneer Valley. By studying Sustainable Food at Smith, students can capitalize on the many opportunities for engagement around food and agriculture-related initiatives underway right in their backyard.
