Bring Food Studies to UT Austin
Thank you for supporting Food Studies!! We are compiling a list of current undergraduate students who are interested in a food curriculum here at UT. If you are currently enrolled and will be at UT for at least one more semester, please provide your info and let us know what kinds of classes, internships, events, scholarships, etc. you would like to see. We are currently in conversation with the Bridging Disciplines Program and are hoping that Food Studies will become the next and newest BDP option on campus, provided that we can collect and track enough student support (ie- you guys!!). For more information, you can also check out the links below. Bridging Disciplines Program website:

Are you currently in one of the Bridging Disciplines Programs?
For more information about the BDP, view their website here: http://www.utexas.edu/ugs/bdp
No, but I would like to be.
No, what is the BDP?
No, not interested.
If the option had been available to you when you were planning your degree, would you have been interested in a Food Studies BDP program (19 hour coursework requirement)?
No, probably not.
If made available beginning FALL 2013, would you actually apply to be in the BDP for Food Studies (19 hour coursework requirement)?
They are looking for about 15-20 applicants each semester. Freshmen and Sophomores are particularly encouraged to apply!
No, probably not.
Please use this space to describe how you think a Food Studies Program would be a beneficial supplement to your current major. You can also explain why you would or would not be interested in applying to the program next year.
Have you already taken any food courses at UT, either currently or in the past? If so, do you mind telling us which ones?
Course - Professor (EX: NTR 316 Culture and Food - Professor Staskel)
Can you please share a quote with us in support of an interdisciplinary academic Food Studies program here at UT?
ie- Why do you think food courses are important to students at UT? What do you have to say about student interest? etc.
Next Semester (Spring 2013) we will also be teaching a 1 hour Intro to Food Studies course, mostly likely on Wednesdays 5-6pm. Please leave your contact info if you're interested in taking it with us.
The day and time is still tentative so leave your info so we can keep you in the loop.
THANK YOU! Anything else you'd like to share or we might have missed?
