The Program on the Environment is one of the university’s largest interdisciplinary academic programs, granting degrees in Environmental Studies and Environmental Management. As part of their BA in Environmental Studies, students choose a cross-disciplinary list of courses that correspond to their own interest and focus in Environmental Studies.

Perspectives Pathways guide students’ understanding and degree curriculum by focusing course choices on a list of classes that relate to a specific environmental issue. The Food and the Environment Perspective Pathway focuses on: “How food is collected and grown; habitat and ecosystem implications of food production; food security and public health; socio-cultural aspects from agribusiness to local organic and slow food movements.”

More about this opportunity for food-focused undergraduates can be found on the Program on the Environment’s website. As always, you should talk to an advisor about which degree path is right for you.
