Are you inspired to solve food system challenges on an individual or global scale? The Master of Science (M.S.) in Food Systems and Society program at Marylhurst University is an online graduate degree focused on the advancement of equitable food systems through analysis and inquiry.

Food systems are the heart of our societies, providing basic human needs, livelihoods and social connection. In connecting culture, politics, environment, health and economy, contemporary food systems both embody and reveal social problems and possibilities. Never before have we faced the scope of issues we confront today, and never before have there been so many inspiring people, ideas and organizations working towards social justice and social change in the food system.

In this two-year master’s program, you will focus on food systems and social change using inquiry, experience and reflection to study fundamental challenges and approaches involved in developing more equitable and sustainable food systems.

Marylhurst’s food systems curriculum examine concepts, perspectives and strategies relevant to social change in the food system. The program integrates lived experience and academic scholarship. Through lenses of class, gender and race-ethnicity, you will analyze how social conditions in the food system developed. You will also study how they are addressed, perceived and portrayed. Students make an impact in their studies by contributing new knowledge to food systems equity and social change through a master’s thesis. This thesis project analyzes problems and proposes solutions.
