Food & Agriculture

Across all seven schools, Stanford has a valid portfolio of courses relevant to social entrepreneurship.

Project-based courses: where you can work on your social venture idea.

Lecture-based, skills and framework courses: to develop basic skills necessary to launch and grow an organization, or to help with funding a social venture or supporting social entrepreneurship in other ways.

Lecture-based, field overview courses: to get a broader landscape view of a particular domain or approach to social impact

 

The listed food and agriculture courses include context-setting courses that cover trends, opportunities, challenges, policy, and key players as well as some project skills development courses focused on food and agriculture.
