Oregon Health & Science University’s Food Systems and Society curriculum integrates lived experience and academic scholarship by examining concepts, perspectives, and strategies relevant to social change in the food system.
Through lenses of class, gender, and race-ethnicity, you will analyze how social conditions in the food system developed. You will also study how they are addressed, perceived, and portrayed. Students make an impact in their studies by contributing new knowledge to food systems equity and social change through a capstone project.
Asynchronous and synchronous learning environments
The OHSU Food Systems and Society program is offered in an accessible, asynchronous, online format, complemented by two short synchronous intensives per year. This combination of modalities enables you to participate in the program while maintaining personal and professional commitments in your place of residence. Each fall and spring, you will spend time collaborating in live sessions with fellow students and faculty and engaging with thought leaders in the field. Part-time degree completion options are also available.
