This fall, Ohio University's College of Arts and Sciences incorporated the use of themes to inform undergraduate curriculum planning. Using themes to inform an undergraduate curriculum gives students the opportunity to fulfill their general education requirements while engaging in topics and subjects in which they are interested and about which they are passionate. Kelee Riesbeck reviews this new approach toward education, the impact this will have on undergraduate learning at OHIO, and the nuts and bolts of the Food Studies theme. Her guests are Theresa Moran, faculty leader for the Food Studies theme, and senior Anna Chelboun for whom food studies is a focus as she works toward her bachelor in specialized studies degree. Chelboun is also the president and founder of OHIO's Food Matters student-run club.
