International Experience

All students who declare the Dual Major in EcoGastronomy spend a full semester abroad, most likely during their junior year. The  University of Gastronomic Sciences (UNISG) in Pollenzo, Italy, served as the initial site for the international experience. The objective of the UNISG is:   “…to create an international research and training center, working to renew farming methods, protect biodiversity and maintain an organic relationship between gastronomy and agricultural science.”

Students will study in Ascoli Piceno, Italy  (Fall semester) or at the Burgundy School of Business in Dijon, France (Spring semester).

Dual Majors will complete at least 12 credits of upper level core courses such as history of cuisine and gastronomy, history of food, aesthetics, food law, food technology processes, cross-cultural comparisons and language.

If you are interested in participating in the spring 2015 in France, please contact the director.

EcoGastronomy in France is now open to all UNH students. 

An information meeting is planned for September 25, Thursday at 12:30 PM in Room 370N PAUL.
