MAM 6030 - Ag & Food Policy


Dr. Christopher Gambino, Assistant Professor, Animal Science   This course will focus on the development and implementation of agriculture policy in the U.S. and the relationship between food and agriculture policy with other public policies.  Topics will include the design and structure of the Farm Bill and public policies related to domestic and international food security, nutrition, food safety, sustainability and the environment. In particular, the course will look at past and present policy tools, levers, and/or mechanisms to align agricultural production and environmental outcomes. To navigate these landscapes, students will explore what goes into creating a food and agricultural system in which environmental stewardship and farmer profitability are complementary goals, and not competing priorities. This course will be taught in conjunction with DelVal’s Masters in Public Policy.
