|Description:||This program is directed at students who seek conceptual understanding of the scope of and inter-relationships among the environmental, economic and socio-cultural factors that shape the nature of developing country food systems as well as scientific competence in the ways in which agriculture can help define sustainable solutions to critical problems defined by food insecurity, malnutrition poverty and ecological health.
Students will be given general preparation sufficient for participation in project management and policy development together with a foundation adequate both for working alongside a range of development specialists and for subsequent acquisition of specific expertise in components of agricultural and food science. The proposed program couples a common core of scientific and development-related courses with a focus on economics and social science offerings from the International Development (ID) program.
