Food security and its impact on health is the focus of the academic theme in Food, Nutrition, and Health. New knowledge and advances in science and technology are integrated with socio-economic, cultural, ethical, and legal considerations in the provision of a safe, nutritious, and sustainable food supply. Our programs are designed to provide students with a broad education in food science and nutrition, as well as an academic background to pursue careers as professional dietitians, nutritionists, food scientists, and food market analysts. Research and teaching span the continuum from the production and processing of food to its marketing, consumption, and impact on public health and community.
