Emphasis in Food Science

The area of food science is available in either the thesis (Plan A) or non-thesis (Plan B) option. The program of study emphasizes food science and supporting basic sciences. Studies can be oriented toward meat science, cereal science, food microbiology, food preservation, food safety, the extrusion processing of food, or other specialized areas in food science. Students with a B.S. degree in food science, nutrition, or a basic science such as biology, chemistry, microbiology, animal science, horticulture, or agronomy usually have an appropriate foundation for a graduate program in food science.
