The Department of Nutrition and Dietetics offers several Study USA courses that students can participate in. The following courses are offered:
Exploring Florence: Culture & Cuisine
If studying abroad is calling you, then come to explore Florence and the Tuscany regions in Italy. Travel for this course is for 2 weeks in May or June. Students visit wineries among the many vineyards just outside of Florence, travel to the town of Modena to explore their famous balsamic vinegar and visit a cheese making factory near Bologna. Students have time to explore the cities, including a guided tour the Uffizi Art Gallery, one of the oldest and best-known art galleries in Europe and participate in an olive oil tasting and cooking class at the Apicius Culinary School!
Exploring the Culture and Cuisine of Price Edward Island
This course will explore the culture and cuisine of Prince Edward Island (PEI), Canada. The Mi’kmaq natives were the original inhabitants of this maritime province, known as the birthplace of Confederation. Rich with Celtic, Acadian, and Mi’kmaq heritage, students will experience the culture and cuisine through participating in food- and agriculture-related tours and experiences, as well as other experiences that highlight PEI’s rich heritage, including its literary history (Anne of Green Gables by Lucy Maude Montgomery) and Acadian influence, from which the Cajun culture evolved.
