To tackle the growing concern about food security and food systems, Kwantlen Polytechnic University (KPU) is launching the Graduate Certificate in Sustainable Food Systems and Security (SFSS). Students from around the world will be able to enrol in the SFSS program. The program features a collaboration between the KPU’s Institute for Sustainable Food Systems and its Faculty of Arts that makes gives the program a wide appeal, says Dr. Diane Purvey, dean of the Faculty of Arts. “The SFSS program is focused on more than just agriculture,” says Purvey. “It highlights people, the economy and social policy.” Students who complete the Graduate Certificate in SFSS will be well-placed to work in government, planning and consulting, NGO operations, public education and research, community activism, community health, and economic development. The certificate can also be extended into a Master of Arts in Interdisciplinary Studies, with an emphasis on sustainable food systems and security, through Royal Roads University in Victoria, B.C. The SFSS Graduate Certificate launches in Fall 2020. To learn more, visit kpu.ca/foodsecurity.
