University Majors

California Polytechnic University, San Luis Obispo
Food Science B.S.- Conc. in Advanced Food Science

With a Food Science degree, you can influence food choices and possibilities. The average supermarket carries more than 20,000 items, most of which were developed into safe, affordable, and tasty products by food scientists. You might work for a large multi-national corporation, with opportunity for traveling the world. You might work for a government agency or a non-profit foundation. You might start your own business or work with a small start-up company. Whichever route you choose, there''s a career waiting for you. Depending on your personal interests, we''ll help you choose the right concentration within the Food Science major to prepare you for your career goals. We offer three different curriculum options or ''concentrations'' within the Food Science major: Advanced Food Science, Applied Food Technology, and Culinary. Advanced Food Science is the curriculum approved by the Institute of Food Technologists (IFT), the key international professional society for food scientists. Students are strongly advised to follow this concentration if they anticipate graduate study following completion of the BS, as many graduate programs in food science require the advanced chemistry and math coursework included in this concentration. In addition, students must follow this concentration to be eligible for IFT scholarships.
