Food Studies

Welcome to Food Studies at UNC

Food Studies is an interdisciplinary major for students who wish to develop their own cohesive course of study relating to food. The major consists of eight courses chosen from at least three academic departments. If you are interested in becoming a Food Studies major at UNC you must write a preliminary proposal with a clear rationale for the intended course of study. The Carolina Global Food Program directors are available to meet with interested students to discuss their proposals. Please contact carolinaglobalfoodprogram@gmail.com to schedule a meeting.

Since food is interdisciplinary by nature, studying it within the parameters of a major helped me become more intentional about my interests. It challenged me to decide what I wanted to study and why.                                                          Lauren Wilson, Class of 2014, editor of edible manhattan and edible brooklyn
