The Food Science and Human Nutrition Department (FSHN) is one of the world’s largest combined academic programs where food science, nutritional sciences, and dietetics are all studied within one department. FSHN has nearly 30 full-time faculty members, 80 graduate assistants, and close to 1,000 undergraduate students. Our programs are accredited by the Institute of Food Technologists (IFT) and the Accreditation Counsel for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics (ACEND). After completing undergraduate degrees, our students typically move on to professional employment, further education or training in food or nutrition graduate programs, or on to professional school programs. We have a strong record of excellent placement of our graduate students in industry and professional organization employment positions, as faculty members at colleges and universities, or in postdoctoral training experiences.
Our faculty has trained at institutions from around the world; they have been widely successful in their teaching, research, and extension efforts. Throughout our programs in food science, nutrition, and dietetics, our faculty is recognized nationally and internationally as experts in their respective fields.
The Food Science and Human Nutrition Department offers programs leading to the degrees of Master of Science in Food Science and Human Nutrition, Doctor of Philosophy in Food Science, and Doctor of Philosophy in Nutritional Sciences (offered under the auspices of the Center for Nutritional Sciences). Minimum requirements for these degrees are located in the Graduate Degrees section of this catalog.
