Tuskegee University (Department of Food and Nutritional Sciences)

The Department of Food and Nutritional Sciences' vision is to educate highly competent professionals pursuing career paths or graduate school at either the M. S. or Ph. D. level.

The program offerings in the Department of Food and Nutritional Sciences consist of options in Food Science, Nutritional Science, the Didactic Program in General Dietetics, Food Science/Biology, and Nutritional Science/Biology, each of which leads to a Bachelor of Science degree. These undergraduate curricula provide a broad general education, plus professional competency for positions in agencies, research laboratories, universities and organizations dealing with health, nutrition, education and human needs. The Food and Nutritional Science Advisory Board (FNSAB, a support arm for the department) composed of professionals in academia and industry, provides student internship opportunities at member companies and annual scholarships for academic achievers in financial need.

The Food Science option is a B.S. degree program of study that integrates food science, chemistry, physics, biology and microbiology in an applied manner. The curriculum is intended to give a firm foundation in science and technology associated with food product development and food processing as they relate to the human body. Students majoring in both food science and nutritional science have a common curriculum in their freshman year. Beginning in their sophomore year, students take specialized courses in food science and related areas. Upon graduation, several career options are available to those majoring in food science. These include research and training programs in the food industry, opportunities in teaching and research, and administrative careers in food and related industries. The program offers excellent preparation for graduate study in food science, nutritional science or several related areas. This program is approved by the Committee on Higher Education of the Institute of Food Technologists, the national accrediting body of undergraduate food science programs across the United States.
