The Nutritional Sciences department offers three optional concentrations. The Sustainable Food Systems and Maternal and Child Nutrition concentrations are options within the MPH program, while the Dietetics concentration is available in the MPH or MS programs.
Sustainable Food Systems Concentration
The concentration in Sustainable Food Systems will provide students with both an understanding of the fundamental linkages between modern food systems and human nutrition, as well as the opportunity to explore specific topics in greater depth including sustainable food production, global food insecurity, domestic and international food policy, food waste, One Health and the food system, sustainable diets, social justice and equity in the food system, and many others. The curriculum for this interdisciplinary concentration draws on the expertise of faculty from many different units across campus in recognition of the increasing demand in the professional marketplace for interdisciplinary scholars and practitioners who are equipped to analyze and address the complex challenges of sustainable food production and global food and nutrition security.
