General info

The design of a food system directly impacts diet, disease, economic development, business viability, air and water quality and the capacity of resources to feed and fuel growing populations. Students in SUNY Cobleskill's newest baccalaureate program will learn about food systems as they exist around the world and the technologies that are critical to efficiently and effectively produce, process, and distribute food.

The program is comprised of four academic cores: sustainability, food policy and law, food production and science, and food business management. Through them, students will gain hands-on learning experience in the College's livestock and dairy facilities, greenhouses, alternative energy labs and culinary facilities.

Through the program cores of Food Systems Management, Food Science and Production and Sustainability, students can take a broad variety of classes in Culinary Arts, Animal Science, Agronomy, Horticulture and Agricultural Engineering. Students also have annual for-credit travel opportunities, both international and domestic, to expose them to food systems as they exist globally.
