The Food Science undergraduate program is built upon solid science. Food Science undergraduates take basic science core courses (chemistry, calculus, biology, microbiology, and physics) and Food Science courses. Food Science majors can tailor their degree to their interests by selecting a curriculum with a concentration in Food Science in Technology; Food, Health, and Wellness; or Food Safety.
