Overview

Master of Science in Food Science and Agricultural Chemistry

The Department of Food Science and Agricultural Chemistry at McGill University offers M.Sc. (thesis and non-thesis) and Ph.D. programs. 

These programs provide training in evolving interdisciplinary areas of:

  • food quality;
  • food safety/food microbiology;
  • food chemistry;
  • food biotechnology;
  • functional ingredients;
  • applied infrared spectroscopy;
  • food processing;
  • thermal generation of aromas and toxicants;
  • marine biochemistry;
  • food chemical toxicants.

The program offers advanced food science courses in a broad range of areas. 

Applicants with a strong background in food science or microbiology or chemistry/biochemistry or post-harvest processing with a strong interest in eventually pursuing doctoral research are encouraged to apply. 

Students must complete a total of 45 credits including ten graduate-level courses, the graduate seminar, and the research project. 

The program may be completed in three to four academic terms (12 to 16 months). 

Entry is possible from other disciplines; however, students may be required to complete selected undergraduate courses as determined by the Department at the time of admission in order to orient themselves to food science.
