Spartans in the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources (CANR) cultivate the next BIG IDEAS in food, health and the environment.
Human Health: Food & Nutrition
Human Health is a field critical to our everyday life. As we investigate new ways to interact with our environment, our food systems and nutrition will be impacted in dynamic ways.
From the science behind food and systems to the impacts on our health, programs in the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources prepare students for the needs of the century ahead.
We cultivate future innovations in food and health!
