授業の概要・目的 This course will cover a range of critical issues related to food and agricultural systems in a global, national, and local perspective. Students will learn to critically analyze how these systems work, how they have developed, how they affect both people and the environment, and what challenges they are facing today. The English-language level of the course is suited to undergraduates who are moderately capable in English listening, and motivated to improving their reading and writing skills.
到達目標 To develop skills and critical thinking that enables participation in and understanding of the diverse range of food and agricultural issues in the English language, with a focus on environmental and applied economics perspectives. Upon completion, students will be in a good position to understand and critically analyze a wide range of debates about food and agriculture.

In addition, we will provide feedback to help students improve their English speaking, reading and writing skills. English skills will not affect grade evaluation, but good attitude to learn and active participation are vital.
授業計画と内容 The semester is divided into six thematic modules covering broad subjects, with each week inside of a module investigating one topic in more critical depth. Each week will feature a required reading and provide optional readings for students seeking more information or preparing to write an essay. The required reading material is generally shorter and easier to understand than optional readings.
