Food Science and Technology Minor: 32 units

Offered by: College of Agriculture, Nutrition and Food Science Department

The Food Science and Technology minor was designed to provide students basic principles and concepts that will improve their knowledge and understanding of food from a scientific perspective and of the use of technology to transform raw food materials. The minor provides students an overview of the field of food science and technology, basic aspects of food safety, and current issues about commercially processed foods. In addition, the students will have the opportunity to further explore specific areas in food science and technology through elective course work. The minor will broaden career opportunities for students following closely related majors such as nutrition science, dietetics, animal science, chemistry, biology, and chemical engineering. Science students take most of the pre-requisite courses as part of the curriculum for their major.
