McGill’s Food Science & Agricultural Chemistry Non-Thesis Masters – applications due May 31, 2015

McGill’s Department of Food Science and Agricultural Chemistry offers a one-year, non-thesis Master’s program which may be of interest to some of our undergraduate students.

Applications from Canadians or permanent residents are being accepted until May 31st, 2015, for the Fall 2015 intake.

We would appreciate if you could forward this information to Food Science undergraduate students in your Faculty. In kind, we will be happy to share web links and literature about your graduate programs with our Food Science students.

Master of Science (M.Sc.); Food Science and Agricultural Chemistry (Non-Thesis) (45 credits)

The program offers advanced food science courses in a broad range of areas. It is suitable for students with an undergraduate degree in food science or a closely related discipline. Entry is possible from other disciplines; however, students will be expected to complete a Qualifying term or year to pick up relevant courses to orient themselves to food science. Students are required to complete a total of 45 credits (10 graduate-level courses, a seminar course, and a research project). Subsequent career paths include work within the food industry and government agencies.

Master of Science (M.Sc.); Food Science and Agricultural Chemistry — Food Safety (Non-Thesis) (45 credits)

The program 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 both in Canada and globally. The program will cover food safety through the entire food supply chain from food production through processing/manufacturing to the food consumer; the courses which make up the program reflect the food safety considerations at the different stages of the farm to table food supply chain.

The programs consist of three 15-credit academic terms: Fall, Winter, and Summer, for a total duration of one year when done on a full-time basis.

**These programs require applicants to be self-funded. Applicants are not required to secure a supervisor for the non-thesis program; instead students are guided by their Program Advisor.
