Chatham's Masters of Arts in Food Studies emphasizes a holistic approach to food systems, from agriculture and food production to cuisines and consumption, providing intellectual and practical experience from field to table. One of the greatest attributes a food studies education can supply is understanding. Understanding of how food is grown, treated, harvested, sold, purchased, consumed, shared, and disposed of. Understanding of the impact it has on its suppliers, consumers, and environment. Understanding of how it affects us all.
