EcoGastronomy Dual Major
The Dual Major in EcoGastronomy integrates UNH strengths in sustainable agriculture, hospitality management, and nutrition . EcoGastronomy offers a unique academic program emphasizing the interdisciplinary, international, and experiential knowledge that connects all three fields. From growing and preparing food to getting first hand experience in international food cultures and issues of food security, the program provides students with an integrated academic experience.
Sustainable Agriculture and Food Systems Major
Sustainable agriculture and food systems is the study sustainable agricultural practices, sustainable food production and food policies, production of local and value-added agricultural products and the science and management of working landscapes, with an emphasis on foundational science courses. The B.S. degree program is well-suited for students interested in developing both a broad base of knowledge and experience in modern agricultural and food systems, and a strong foundation in the biological sciences.
Environmental Conservation and Sustainability Major
Students study environmental conservation and sustainability because they share a vision of a future where people live with respect for the Earth’s natural systems and each other. Examine the impacts of technology and human activity on the environment, learn the foundational principles of sustainability, and gain a deeper understanding of the complex relationships between human societies and the natural environment. As students in this program progress through their studies, they develop a focus area tied to an environmental issue, ecological system or natural resource.
Natural Resources & Earth Systems Science (NRESS) PhD
Both the global environment and our understanding of that environment are changing at rates that are unprecedented in the history of the Earth. Solutions to environmental problems require knowledge of the interaction among physical, biological, environmental, and socioeconomic factors, while ethical considerations underlie both the identification of environmental problems and choice of action. The NRESS Ph.D. program is designed to meet this challenge and to encourage interdisciplinary research on the environment in the broadest sense.
