The Master of Food Science (MFS) program was launched in 2007 to prepare students for professional work in the food industry or government.
In the one-year program, you’ll gain a solid theoretical foundation in food science and valuable practical industry experience.
You’ll build connections, gain teamwork and communication skills, and learn theory that you can apply globally.
This professional program emphasises problem-based learning, so a thesis is not required; instead, you’ll gain valuable practical experience in a 3.5-month industry practicum.
MFS program is Canada's only program offering a one-year, non-thesis Master of Food Science degree.
Every year several practicum sites either hire or extend their student’s contracts.
After completing two semesters of coursework, the program culminates with a 15‑week summer practicum in which the students get hands-on experience working on a project in an industry or government setting.

4) Statement of intent
Possess a “first-class average” (or established equivalent) in a degree deemed as an eligible basis for admission, OR have academic qualifications that would have ranked them in the top 33% of students admitted to the graduate program to which they are applying, for the year prior to the date of their application.
Have English language proficiency, demonstrated via an accepted test, that can reasonably be expected to be brought up to the standard required by the graduate program to which the student has applied by completing ELI (or accepted equivalent) training in no more than one year.
Be recommended for the Conditional Admission Program by a UBC graduate program.
Students admitted via the Conditional Admission Program are not allowed to make academic progress toward their graduate degrees before they successfully complete the English language training program and are admitted without condition to the graduate program.
Note to graduate programs: Students cannot be admitted to the Conditional Admission Program through eVision. They must be admitted through the Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies via a manual letter. Please contact G+PS for information.
The GRE is not required.
