While Yale’s status as a formal Land Grant College may have been short-lived, the University offers manifold opportunities to study food and agricultural systems from a number of perspectives. Some 40 courses in Yale College and across the graduate and professional schools — offered annually — mobilize various frameworks with which to make sense of the “wicked” problems that contemporary food systems pose.

We work with students and faculty to amplify and expand offerings in food systems study through supporting course development efforts, bringing visiting scholars and lecturers to the graduate schools, catalyzing symposia and colloquia, and teaching through problem-based learning at the Yale Farm.

Students searching for food-centric curricular offerings should approach OCI — a “best hits” of courses for the semester are revealed at the beginning of each term in our weekly newsletter.
