Food, Culture and Society


Gain an understanding of food’s place at the intersection of culture, history and society

Open to:

  • any current Ohio State undergraduate student

In association with several departments in the College of Arts and Sciences, the Department of Anthropology’s Food, Culture and Society certificate offers students an opportunity to explore the ways that food shapes our interactions with one another, within and across cultures, throughout history and into the present. By focusing on the cultural significance, history and social meanings of food, this certificate allows students to develop a dynamic framework for understanding the place of food in societies from a variety of perspectives.
