A Master of Science in Food Science is a graduate degree that prepares people to work in various aspects of food production and development. As a Master of Science, the program takes an in-depth, multidisciplinary approach to give students a deeper understanding of food safety and science.

What is an MSc in Food Science? This degree focuses on health, food quality and safety, and food production. Degree candidates learn about every step of production, from growing or harvesting to cooking and consuming. The degree pulls from a wide range of disciplines including chemistry, biology, nutrition, and chemical engineering. Students learn about the properties that give food its flavor and health benefits, the processes commonly used in food production, and various methods of improving food quality or safety.

An advanced degree in food science can be valuable because of the increasing public focus on producing food sustainably and consuming only healthy food. Candidates with a Master of Science in this discipline are uniquely equipped to take on jobs focusing on healthy or eco-friendly food production.

The cost of earning a Master of Science can be considerably different from one region and institution to the next. Prospective students should carefully research the different programs to identify one with manageable expenses.

People who have studied food science may work in food production, product development, or quality control. Specific jobs include improving growth or production processes, developing new foods, and preventing contamination or other food safety issues. Food scientists may work for employers ranging from large corporations to government agencies.

Today, the MSc in Food Science can be earned online.
