M.S. - Food Science
Learn to use the technology and equipment to conduct scientific experiments on the microbiology and chemistry of food products. Study the science of sensory evaluation or how to test products under extreme conditions such as high pressure and or cold temperatures.
Learn by doing in microbiology labs, sensory labs, and food science labs. Understand production from start to finish in on-campus processing facilities. The food science program is offered in partnership with Washington State University, just 8 miles away, giving you access to the professors and facilities of both major universities.
Work with faculty members whose grant-funded research projects are contributing to the food industry’s most exciting innovations. Before entering the program, determine the professor whose research interests match your own. Secure a position as an assistant in his or her lab. This professor will chair your graduate committee and guide your independent project.
