At Smith we understand that one way to make a difference in the world is to grow knowledge. That is why, after demonstrated interest by students and faculty, CEEDS announced an environmental concentration in sustainable food. The Sustainable Food Concentration lets students 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.
By studying sustainable food, students can capitalize on the many opportunities for engagement around food and agriculture-related initiatives happening right in their own backyard. The Sustainable Food Concentration helps you put theory into practice, gaining hands-on experience in a topic that is integral to both your surrounding community and the global community.
