Global Food Security Graduate Certificate

The 12-hour, graduate certificate in Global Food Security (GFS) is an interdisciplinary program offered by the International Center for Food Industry Excellence that enables individuals to increase their understanding of the interdisciplinary issues related to the approaching global crisis of food insecurity as the world surges toward more than 9 billion people by the year 2050. The program follows recommendations from the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations for increased education within the four pillars of food security: Availability, Access, Stability and Utilization. This program will help increase students’ understanding of various aspects of GFS while allowing the flexibility to focus instruction in one of the four defined pillars. Courses are offered in a face-to-face or distance format by several departments within the university including Agricultural Education and Communications, Agricultural and Applied Economics, Animal and Food Sciences, Nutritional Sciences and Plant and Soil Sciences. For more information contact the Department of Agricultural Education and Communications, the administrative department for the program.
