What will I learn?

Food science applies scientific principles to the manufacture, distribution, marketing, and consumer aspects of food. Food scientists apply the basic principles and techniques of many disciplines, including chemistry, physics, microbiology, and nutrition, to food processing and preservation, new product development, and food marketing. Food scientists are concerned with the theoretical and practical aspects of the food chain, from the production of raw materials to the use of food products by consumers. Students may emphasize the chemistry, engineering, microbiology, nutrition, or technology of food products. Students may spend a maximum of five (5) years in this degree program.

The College of Food, Agricultural and Natural Resource Sciences uses research, education and outreach to find and share its discoveries on an enormous range of topics. Summing our work up in one sentence isn’t easy, but here goes: We find ways to provide food, fuel, feed and fiber that is healthy, safe, accessible and sustainable while protecting our natural resources and improving soil, air, and water quality to benefit and sustain communities.
