Food Studies

Curriculum Planning: Global

Studying at one of NYU’s global sites will significantly enhance your education by gaining real-life, immersive experiences in an international context. Discover the foodways of France through cheeses of Normandy or confections in Paris. Walk through the markets of Mexico with a bag full of chili-lime seasoned fresh papaya. Trace the colonial roots of Puerto Rico's contemporary food system and learn how entrepreneurs are reshaping it today.

Explore Israel, Cuba, Puerto Rico, China, and others, and reflect on your own culture through a new lens, while incorporating rigorous food studies coursework. We encourage you to take this unique and challenging opportunity and embark on what would certainly be one of the most memorable experiences of your life.
