The Public Health program within the Department of Public Health, Food Studies and Nutrition offers both undergraduate and graduate degree programs. Students in the department learn about health issues among diverse populations; factors influencing the health of individuals, families, and communities; health literacy; and cultural competence, with a predominant focus on health promotion. The Nutrition Science and Dietetics Program offers bachelor of science (B.S.) degrees in nutrition/dietetics and nutrition science, and master of arts (M.A.) and master of science (M.S.) degrees in nutrition science. At the undergraduate level, students in nutrition/dietetics prepare to work in a variety of health and health promotion fields, many as registered dietitians. The Falk College’s undergraduate program in food studies is distinct from programs elsewhere. The presence of extensive kitchens and a professional staff of chefs, combined with nutrition and food policy experts, creates a more diverse and extensive program than is available elsewhere. The Falk College’s unique undergraduate program centers on the political economy of food, but also includes Agroecology, Gastronomy, and Nutrition. We take a food praxis approach: the objective of the classroom is to understand, act upon, and improve the world.
