This is how we feed the world.
Everybody eats. But sadly, many lack access to safe, healthy food. This is a growing issue as our population climbs while our world becomes smaller in many ways. The challenge before us is clear: We must produce more with less. We must double our output using the same (or even fewer) resources than we are using now. And we must do so in ways that ensure that safe, healthy food is grown and delivered in environmentally responsible ways. This takes innovation. It takes science. Creativity. Passion. Curiosity. Above all, it takes people who care deeply about the individuals and the communities around them. As you consider a future in helping resolve these serious global challenges, consider the food- and science-based majors listed below.
