From Farm to Family Table: Understanding the Food Regulatory Life Cycle

RFA 6110 3 Quarter Hours
Course Level CPS - Graduate
Description Studies the life cycle (stages such as preharvest, harvest/slaughter, processing, packaging, distribution, and retail) of different categories of food. This “farm-to-table” process requires the alignment and collaboration of diverse industry and regulatory stakeholders—often with very divergent interests. Offers students an opportunity to begin developing specialized knowledge, broad and integrative knowledge, applied and collaborative learning, and civic and global learning as they examine the dominant food distribution channels as well as the economic, scientific, and regulatory compliance considerations of big agribusinesses.


Students should refer to the CPS Prerequisite Table for course prerequisite and corequisite information.
