The Agriculture, Food and Environment program of Tufts University fuses the disciplines of nutrition, sustainability, agricultural science, environmental studies, and public policy. Our students learn to evaluate the ecological, political, economic and social aspects of food production and distribution.


About the Program

The Agriculture, Food and Environment program of Tufts University has a long commitment to sustainability, especially in the agricultural realm. Meeting sustainability goals requires both public and private sector initiatives and actions.  For example, many federal programs seek to help farmers and ranchers improve environmental outcomes. Within the private sector, large and small food supply chain businesses are developing and implementing best practices in response to both consumer demands and changing supply chains – these span environmental, social, and economic aspects of sustainability. 

Students come to the AFE Program to help build a more desirable food production and distribution system, making agriculture and food systems more supportive of the natural environment and the society they serve. Students apply to AFE from varied academic and professional backgrounds in areas such as agriculture, biology, nutrition or health and environmental studies, as well as political science, history, economics and business or the liberal arts. Most students enter the program with applicable professional and volunteer experience which contributes to classroom discussion and community life.
