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. Since many institutions still do not offer this degree, online courses can be an excellent option for people who want to complete an education without moving or giving up a current job. Anyone interested in this degree can easily learn more about curricula, pricing, and other degree program details. Search for your program below and contact directly the admissions office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.

Food is fundamentally different from other goods: It consists of (parts of) organisms that were alive or still are. In addition to the higher complexity of its composition and the variation in its starting materials, this results in a greater risk of variability during production, transport, and storage. How do we supply as many people as possible in the most sustainable ways with high-quality, healthy food? You will deal with this and similar questions in the master’s programme "Food Quality and Safety". -

The food sector is essential to ensure the quality and development of society. Despite the recent food systems developments, nowadays great challenges are approaching. Examples of these are the 2030 Agenda, issued by the UN with 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) since developments and sustainability are currently on a collision route, and the COVID-19 pandemic. By 2050, the world will need 60 percent more food, and with the drop in productivity levels, it is unlikely that this goal will be achieved, at least if there is no change to the current food system. In this sense, it is necessary to create development and innovation strategies to increase agricultural and food production sustainably, improve global supply chains, decrease food losses and wastes, decrease environmental impact, save energy and ensure safe and nutritious food for all. -
