Food Science and Human Nutrition
Purpose: These collections support teaching and research through the Master's level in Human Nutrition and Foods and through the doctoral level in Food Science. Interdepartmental specialization is also available at the doctoral level in Nutrition. While concern for these fields is centered in the Department of Food Science and Human Nutrition and the Program in Nutrition, faculty and students in other schools and departments have interest in specific areas, such as Animal Sciences and Biochemistry/Biophysics in nutrition, and Biological Systems Engineering and Chemical Engineering in food science and technology.General Collection Guidelines:
