Every day, the dietary choices we make have consequences for us, our communities, the environment, and people across the globe. 
An examination of agriculture, the food industry, and advertising reveals the causes of numerous social problems for a culture over-fed yet under-nourished by the food we produce.

Pre-requisites: COR 1 course or bridge transfer equivalent. Counts as an elective for the Health and Society minor, as well as Sociology and Environmental Studies.
