If there is one thing we have learned about the youth of today it is that they are purpose-driven. You thought we were going to say something about Snapchat, didn’t you?

We are probably showing our bias here, but we think that making sure every person on the planet has healthy food kind of fits the bill. But not everyone can just go out and be a farmer.
Fret not — if making a difference and feeding the world is your jam, there are plenty of things you can study now to benefit the world tomorrow. Of course, we need more plant biologists, agronomists, chemists, environmental scientists and others who you would typically association with growing crops and producing food. But there are some non-traditional areas that you might not have thought of.
