Food scientists are the people who design new products for your grocery shelves, the ones who improve our lifestyles by shortening the time it takes busy people to prepare a meal.  They may also work for international health and service organizations, finding ways to make our world’s food resources safe and meet the needs of growing populations.

What's Unique about this Degree: Students completing this program to pursue food science can benefit from a 2+2 transfer agreement with Purdue University.

Good to Know: Students enrolled in VU’s two-year academic transfer program can transfer to any baccalaureate institution but the course of study was particularly designed to transfer to Purdue University’s School of Agriculture and earn a baccalaureate degree from the Food Science Department.
