Program Overview

Food choices now involve much more than what we will have for dinner. Chronic disease, waste, climate change, rapid urbanization, technological change, hunger, and inequity are issues everyone in the food sector must consider. In the Honours Bachelor of Food Studies (H317) program, you'll explore these issues with a focus on justice and equity, sustainability and health.

This four-year program provides the food leaders of tomorrow with the skills, insights and knowledge to succeed in this rapidly changing industry. Graduates will be positioned to succeed in a wide range of food-related occupations, including roles in culinary, education, tourism, recreation, health, food security, sustainability, economic development, agriculture, public policy and research. There are growing opportunities for careers informed by both culinary experience and versatile critical thinking.

In the classroom and beyond, students will be introduced to the vibrant world of food in a culturally diverse and inclusive environment. Students will participate in a paid co-op placement and community-engaged learning opportunities.
