CSPH 3301: Food Choices: Healing the Earth, Healing Ourselves

3 CreditsOnline Available

Food production in our current industrial system feeds the world, but at a cost to the environment. In nutrition, we often talk about a healthy diet, but only occasionally do we link our food and diet choices to agricultural practices and the health of the planet. This class will link the concepts of human health and planetary health in terms of food. Starting with the framework of complexity theory and gentle action, we will cover human food/nutrition needs and food security, how food is produced from farm to fork, labor, equity and race issues within agriculture and the food system, food choices and the earth’s bio-diversity, land and water use, climate change, organic and sustainable agriculture, marketing, processing and distribution, fair trade, and economic policies. prereq: junior or senior undergraduates (60+ credits) or instructor consent
