Faculty, study abroad directors and administrators concur that Gustolab International Food Systems and sustainability (GLI) is essential to their students’ academic enrichment. In addition to having access to attentive staff, expert professors, and prominent figures in their respective fields, the focus on experiential learning aligns with diverse curriculum and majors.
The study of food encompasses all fields. Gustolab International excels at offering an integrated program suited to a wide array of disciplines within the biological, social, and cultural sciences. All majors are accommodated. Students even come from the departments of economics, business, advertising, marketing, psychology, sociology, language, nutrition, environmental studies, sustainability , architecture and design.
We have collaborated in the design and implementation of over twenty faculty-led programs to Italy. We have hosted more than thirty faculty members on visiting appointments at our Institute. We are eager to work with you and to learn more about your plans.
Professor Tinkler of Hobart and William Smith Colleges says, “Food is life. Seeing literally the way people eat, is a way of seeing how they live.” Highlighted is the fact that Italy is a natural laboratory, one of the best destinations to study food and nutrition. Rome and its environs are the ideal “classroom.”
