Food Sciences

Master-level studies involve specialized study in a field of research or an area of professional practice. Earning a master’s degree demonstrates a higher level of mastery of the subject. Earning a master’s degree can take anywhere from a year to three or four years. Before you can graduate, you usually must write and defend a thesis, a long paper that is the culmination of your specialized research.

Food sciences focuses on the study of food, with an emphasis on creating reliable, sustainable, and safe food sources. Understanding food sciences may lead to important discoveries in food technology as well as the production and maintenance of a healthy food supply.
