Food Studies

Food Studies

Program Summary

Food Studies is an interdisciplinary field dedicated to understanding where our food comes from and how it shapes our bodies and identities. To understand the place of food in society, students in this program will draw on a number of disciplinary methodologies, including anthropology, ecology, gender studies, geography, history, nutrition, and sociology. The program will also leverage the university’s urban location to use Scarborough as a classroom to understand the rich traditions and special challenges involved in feeding diasporic communities. The study of food provides both theoretical understanding and practical knowledge for professional careers in health care, business, government service, non-governmental organizations, and educational and community programs.
