- The foods we eat are essential to maintaining the health of individuals and populations. Students in the Honours Bachelor of Food and Nutrition Sciences will have an in-depth knowledge of the sciences underlying the production, consumption and metabolism of food, as well as their effects on health, disease prevention and management.
- This program focuses on the acquisition of knowledge in microbiology, physico-chemical and sensory properties of food, preparing graduates for careers in the agri-food sector such as agri-food industries, businesses, food science research centres and government departments. As the only food science training offered in the context of a faculty of health sciences in Canada, this option places greater emphasis on the health impact of food.
- It offers multiple educational opportunities to actively participate in experiential learning projects. Several optional courses on currently relevant subjects, as well as internship opportunities in research, public institutions and industrial settings are integrated into the curriculum.
- The Honours Bachelor of Food and Nutrition Sciences is offered in French and English.
- A Nutrition Sciences Option is offered in French for students who wish to pursue a career as dietitians. Please see the French website for details.
Nutrition and food innovation are key to achieving global health and wellness. Our programs aspire to create and mobilize leading-edge food and nutrition knowledge for enabling healthy lifestyles.
