On behalf of the Provost and the OSU Faculty Senate I am pleased to announce the approval of the following certificate:
Food in Culture and Social Justice Undergraduate Certificate
Beginning this summer the School of Language, Culture and Society will offer an interdisciplinary undergraduate certificate. Students who complete this certificate will not only have a clear idea of the cultural bases of food and food production, but will obtain some experience working towards community food security. The core will consist of courses in Anthropology, History and Ethnic Studies and a team-taught course on Food Systems. Electives are divided evenly between coursework in other humanities and social science disciplines and coursework in Agriculture, Nutrition, Food Science and Public Health. All programs include at least 1 credit of experiential/service learning which will be spent volunteering with food-related organizations.
For questions regarding this program, please contact Joan Gross at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This certificate was approved by the OUS Provost’s Council on May 3, 2012 and will be available beginning Summer term, 2012.
