About Doctor of Philosophy in Integrated Studies in Land and Food Systems at The University of British Columbia

Program Overview

The objective of this program is to help students develop the knowledge base and integrative skills necessary to evaluate the cycle of food systems, production, processing and disposal. And to develop sustainable solutions based on agroecological, economic and social dimensions.

What sets the UBC program apart?

Arguably the most important challenge for the world community in the 21st Century is Global Food Security - our ability to create a sufficient, healthy, safe, culturally relevant and economically accessible food system for everyone. Sustainable food systems will require more than technological advances, and must integrate economic, social and environmental relationships, thus involving community, land and food systems.

Career Options

Graduates from the ISLFS program have the skills necessary to work for government organizations and NGOs creating policy on food security and food sovereignty, community gardens, large- and small-scale agriculture firms, education and school nutrition advisory boards, poverty outreach organizations, and many others.
