Undergraduate Programs

Degree Options

The School of Food Science (SFS) encourages students to work side by side with faculty who care about your success and academic experience.  A food science degree prepares students for successful careers with a food industry, research, or manufacturing company in the public, corporate, or government sector. Food science graduates are leaders in food production and processing, quality assurance and control, technical representation in the sale and marketing of foods, food product development, food science research, regulation, and enforcement of food laws. The need for trained food scientists has grown steadily in pace with consumer demands for convenient, safe, nutritious food, and beverages.

Our goal within SFS is to equip the student with the skills necessary to make a successful career a reality.  Students completing our programs are highly sought after by employers.
