NST W104:  Food, Culture, and the Environment AC.  (3 units, online course)

This course will broadly address the historical, ecological, socioeconomic, biological, political, and cultural environments impacting the human diet in addition to nutrition problems, programs, and consumer protection. It is a nutrition course with an anthropological slant that examines why we eat what we eat and contributes to the pursuit of multidisciplinary degrees in nutrition policy and planning. As an American Cultures course, we will discuss cuisines from a variety of different countries and regions, with a specific focus on those in America, and examine how race and ethnicity affect diet, food access, and the human relationship with food. 

​This satisfies the AC requirement and the L&S Social and Behavioral Sciences breadth.
