MFST Class Schedule


MFST 101   Experiencing Food Systems   credit: 3 Hours.

This course uses a guided, discovery-based learning approach designed for students to understand, apply, and analyze key principles of a food system: what food is, where it comes from, how it gets to our plate, and what happens to food waste. Students will develop an understanding of the interrelatedness and interdependence of the food system components. Students will also "experience the food system" through activities related to food production, processing, retail, and post-consumption operations.
