Undergraduate Certificate on Food, Biodiversity, and Sustainability Studies

The Food and Sustainability Certificate is a five-course (2.5 credit) credential open to all Laurier undergraduate students. The certificate creates opportunities for students to better understand sustainable food systems and build the practical and critical skills they need to become future ready changemakers in the field. Students will take courses that use food to explore the three key dimensions of sustainability—environment (e.g., biodiversity, climate change), social justice (e.g., fair livelihoods and work, food access), and local/regional economies (e.g., circular economies, food policy, food supply chains). This certificate will appeal to students who wish to complement the knowledge they gain through their degrees with a robust understanding of how food can be a lever for sustainable change. It will also prepare students to work in food policy, civil society organizations, government, research, academic, and private industry.
