About Food Safety and Nutrition
The Food Safety and Nutrition Concentration blends a strong science base with courses in nutrition, food science, food safety, and food microbiology. The curriculum prepares students for employment in the food industry or government in such areas as quality assurance, product development, research, food inspection, food plant management, and consumer education. The concentration also provides an excellent background for graduate study. Students in the concentration are encouraged to participate in the Food Science/Safety Interdisciplinary Minor to further their understanding of the continuum of responsibility shared throughout the food system in ensuring that food is safe and healthful.
