Food Studies Program

The UNT Food Studies Program offers a both an undergraduate certificate and a PhD program through the History Department. Its unique interdisciplinary curriculum focuses on training and inspiring the next generation of food entrepreneurs, food scientists, and food activists and invites students to look at food from new perspectives. By blending the perspectives of the humanities and the sciences, students learn about the historical and cultural underpinnings of contemporary food practices while developing creative research-based solutions to current problems within our global food systems. The interdisciplinary approach provides students with a wide set of tools to critically study the role of food in everyday life, and communicate their research to multiple audiences.
