American Studies 200 is a topics course focusing on one American theme or topic, and examining it from the perspectives of multiple academic disciplines. Students in this section were exposed to a combination of lecture, discussion, guest lectures, field trips, writing, and presentation assignments to help them improve their reading, thinking, and writing on food and sustainability issues at a college level.

In order to be exposed to real-life applications of food sustainability concepts explored in class, students were given 10 different options for trips into the city at various points in the semester, and required to choose any 3 that fit their schedules.
