Description The Food Safety concentration is offered to candidates who seek further specialization in the area of food safety but do not wish to pursue independent research. It is intended to train graduate students as specialists in food safety with the expectation that graduates will be well-prepared academically to take on the challenging food safety events and issues that emerge in Canada and globally. The program covers food safety through the entire food supply chain from food production through processing/manufacturing to the food consumer. A strong undergraduate background in food science and particularly in microbiology is required. Students must complete a total of 45 credits including ten graduate-level courses, the graduate seminar, and the research project. The program may be completed in three to four academic terms (12 to 16 months). Students may also be required to complete selected undergraduate courses as determined by the Department at the time of admission.
