Course Description

This seminar is designed to offer doctoral students a forum for discussing issues, methodologies, and research findings at a higher plane of analysis. Will represent a venue for in-depth, cross-disciplinary exploration of challenging topics. Under the direction of one or more faculty members, students will be expected to facilitate topic discussions and guide each other's research, evaluate methods, and critique research findings, often in fields outside of nutrition. Students will be actively challenged to explore cutting-edge topics in innovative ways. The seminar offers students an opportunity to apply new methodologies or insights directly to their own work and return to the seminar at different stages of preparation for further review. In addition, students will develop more presentational skills, and learn the art of giving and receiving constructive criticism. The grading basis for this course is Satisfactory/Unsatisfactory.

NOTE: FPAN PHD REQUIREMENT. Food Policy and Applied Nutrition doctoral candidates are required to fulfill at least two semesters during the period of their doctoral program; participation by FPAN doctoral students beyond the requirement two is strongly encouraged. Strongly recommended for doctoral students in the (former) World Hunger, U.S. Food and Nutrition Issues programs and AFE program. Other doctoral students are welcome.


The seminar is open to doctoral program students or Masters-level students already admitted to the doctoral program. Other Masters students may be considered only with instructor's consent.
