Select one of the following five options:
Food Science Option
The Food Science option provides a broad exposure to food chemistry, food microbiology and food processing. Students find positions in quality assurance, product development, and food processing in the food industry.
Restricted Electives for the Food Science option
The restricted electives can:
(1) Provide a broad exposure to students who would seek positions in quality assurance, product development, and processing in the food industry
(2) Prepare students for graduate study in food science or related programs,
(3) Prepare students for professional school in the health sciences. Select courses from a master list, which is available from the advising center for the major.
Brewing Science Option
The Brewing Science option prepares students for careers in production or quality assurance within the brewing industry or other food fermentation industries (e.g., other alcoholic beverages, vinegar and cheese). The option also prepares students for graduate study in food science or related programs, and exposes the students to diverse topics, including chemistry, biochemistry, microbiology and processing.
