Description:Knowledge of food and nutritional science is required in order to make decisions on such issues as the irradiation of foods, genetically modified foods, contamination of foods by micro-organisms and toxic compounds, and food preservation.

Carleton’s new program in Food Science and Nutrition is unique in that it combines a solid science base with the study of the assessment, management, and communication of risk in food safety. No other food or nutritional science program in Canada offers this depth in science as well as in the economics, risk assessment, policy, and regulation areas. In first year, students will take courses in biology, chemistry, math, economics, and food science. The Food Science and Nutrition program is offered as a Bachelor of Science (Honours) program.
