Science and Agricultural Journalism Tracks

Food and Wine Track

A new focus area in the MU Science and Agricultural Journalism Program allows students to pursue studies aimed at a career in writing about food and wine.

Interest in food and wine is growing among consumers, student journalists and players in the news media industry. Also, dairy, meat and wine are major industries in Missouri. This track prepares students for journalism and strategic communications careers in this increasingly important sector.

The Food and Wine Track includes a specialized course in writing about food and wine. Other courses within the College of Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources in this track include Introduction to Food Science, Elements of Food Microbiology, Introduction to Viticulture (grape production) and Enology (wine production), Grapes and Wines of the World, Principles of Wine Production and Principles of Wine Cellar Operation.

Students in this track complete the same wide range of journalism courses in the Missouri School of Journalism as any Science and Agricultural Journalism major.
