Food Science Master of Science Degree

Students initiating graduate degree programs in the Department of Food Science come to the department with a variety of academic backgrounds. Since the department has a discipline approach to graduate studies, students with degrees in any of the various science, agricultural and engineering disciplines, as well as Food Science majors, are able to design challenging academic programs that will prepare them for successful careers.

 Students with degrees in Biology, Chemistry, Microbiology, Biochemistry, Nutrition, Engineering (Electrical, Mechanical, Chemical, and Biological), Poultry Science, Animal Science, and Horticulture have earned advanced degrees in the Department of Food Science. Graduate students in the department also come from diverse geographical and cultural backgrounds. All sections of the US and different countries are represented. Approximately three-quarters of our graduate students come from the US and one-quarter from the rest of the world. When combined with the international experiences of the faculty, students have the opportunity to enrich their knowledge of other cultures and gain insights into the status of scientific inquiry at the international level.

 Many of our graduate students also take advantage of the opportunities for fellowship and develop their organizational and leadership skills through participation in the Food Science Club, Graduate Student Association and Leadership Development Seminars.

 In addition to NCSU curricula, graduate students may also take courses at the other triangle universities, UNC-Chapel Hill and Duke University. Our students are also encouraged to be active in one or more organizations that represents their professional interests. These enrichment opportunities combined with the outstanding talents of students admitted to our department have contributed to the success of NCSU graduate students in winning prestigious fellowships and recognition by national honor societies. Our students are awarded IFT Fellowships routinely in national competition.
