Agriculture, Food, and the Environment GE Minor

Total Units Required: 18

Explore the importance of food through agricultural, environmental, economic, and cultural lenses. Who are you in relation to food production, distribution, and consumption practices? How are diverse populations represented in discussions of food systems? By critically thinking about the role of foodways in our everyday lives, you will engage in scientific inquiry, explore equitable practices in communities, develop skills related to your field, and produce effective writing and multimedia projects.

Students who are already completing the associated General Education (GE) Agriculture, Food, and the Environment upper-division Pathway can earn the minor by taking six courses from different GE Areas. Students who complete all courses in the minor will meet the University’s US Diversity (USD) and Global Cultures (GC) requirements, as well as at least one upper-division Writing (W) course.
