Food Studies–University Programs

Food Studies is now a recognized discipline and course of study at many universities. It is interdisciplinary, draws from the humanities and the sciences, and is useful in a wide variety of careers–both academic and applied/professional–related to food. The premier organization for food studies in the U.S. is the Association for the Study of Food and Culture. You can check their website ( for more information about programs and requirements. A listing of academic programs can be found on the Resources section under Food Studies. Each program has a slightly different emphasis, so it is important for prospective students to match their own interests with the program.
