Departments and programs across Duke offers a wealth of undergraduate and graduate courses that can inform and empower students interested in making change within the dynamic world of food systems. These courses can augment any degree program and lead to undergraduate research, internship opportunities and graduate research experiences. The WFPC will gladly talk with and advise any student with an interest in food policy, practice, food research, and food system equity.

Note: Courses that include an S in the course number are small, seminar classes. Courses that include a D in the course number have a discussion section (larger classes).
