D. Brown.

The purpose of this course is to leave Cornell students from any major with a deep and quantitative understanding of the agricultural systems that feed the world today, others that fed the world during the past 10,000 years, and those that will be needed to feed the world in the future. These students will also be motivated to take action through their daily lives to achieve better food systems for their community of the world, through their life’s work, by what they eat, and which policies they advocate.
