The MS in Food Systems & Society is an innovative degree program that delves deeply into ideas and practices for improving health, equity and sustainability in our food systems.
Whether you're a mid-career professional or a recent graduate, you are an ideal student for this degree program if you:
- Are interested in food systems and motivated to improve them
- Are a self-directed, collaborative learner who wants to engage actively in seminar-style discussions both on campus and online
- Want to study food systems from an interdisciplinary perspective
- Seek a rigorous graduate program that is flexible enough to allow you to maintain career, personal life and community commitments
- Want to produce a thesis or capstone project that promotes social change in the food system
The MS in Food Systems & Society is a low-residency, cohort-based program. It combines interactive classes delivered online with in-person intensive sessions. Students will come to campus twice each year for intensive sessions with program faculty and other food system leaders. It is a hybrid learning model that allows you to develop lasting peer relationships both in person and through dynamic online communication and continue to live and work in your community of choice.
