Marcie Ferris with food in focusThe arts, humanities and social sciences teach critical and creative thinking and complex problem-solving skills that will help our graduates to lead and succeed in an increasingly global, interconnected world.

After careful consideration, the steering committee chose six themes to highlight the work at Carolina that helps us understand and address the critical issues of our time.

How do people’s traditions around food differ, and how do their environments influence them? The arts, humanities and qualitative social sciences help us think critically about pressing topics such as food ethics, sustainability and food insecurity. This theme offers synergies with the university’s two-year campus-wide theme, Food for All: Local and Global Perspectives.
