Sustainable Agriculture Course

Cross-disciplinary curriculum drawing from a wide range of expertise

The Social Dimensions of Sustainable Food and Fiber Systems course (NR 324) is offered annually during winter quarter. The course serves as a foundational curriculum for those seeking to understand the complexities of the subject. The cross-disciplinary curriculum draws from a wide range of expertise that addresses environmental, agricultural, economic and societal aspects, with particular emphasis on the latter. The course fulfills the Area D 'Society and the Individual' GE requirement, and has a strong written skills emphasis. Students can also expect to learn from a variety of agricultural innovators and guest speakers during the course. This upper-division general education course is available to all majors, and is a core requirement for the Sustainable Agriculture Minor developed by the Center for Sustainability and currently housed in the Horticulture and Crop Science Department (HCS).

Faculty instructor for the Social Dimensions of Sustainable Food and Fiber Systems course is Dr. Priya Verma (pverma@calpoly.edu) in the Natural Resources Management and Environmental Sciences Department (NRES).
