2017-18 Academic Catalog

Department of Food Science, Nutrition and Health Promotion

Department Head: Professor Marion W. Evans, Jr.
Office: 107 Herzer Building

The Food Science, Nutrition and Health Promotion major offers the opportunity to gain a broad education in food science, nutrition, and health, as well as the specific academic background to pursue careers as food scientists and dietitians/nutritionists. It involves the integration of new knowledge and advances in technology and the physical and biological sciences with psychological, sociological, and behavioral sciences in the provision of a safe, nutritious food supply. Research, teaching, and outreach extend the continuum from the processing of food to its marketing, consumption, and impact on public health and community.

Food scientists integrate knowledge from engineering, biological, and physical sciences to study the nature of foods, the causes of deterioration, the principles underlying food processing, and the improvement of foods for the consuming public. Food technology is the application of food science to the selection, preservation, processing, packaging, distribution, and use of safe, nutritious, and wholesome foods (http://www.ift.org/knowledge-enter/learnabout-food-science.aspx, 2013).

The Department offers either a degree or a concentration in Culinology®. This is a dual degree program in which students take courses at Mississippi State University and Mississippi University for Women in Columbus, Mississippi. The Culinology® curriculum includes courses that combine the disciplines of food science and culinary arts. Culinologists work in diverse areas within the food industries - from experimental chefs and menu planners to food manufacturing, fine dining and product development.

Nutritionists and dietitians are food and nutrition experts studying the relationship of nutrition and diet in promoting health and treating disease. Studies include nutritional science, medical nutrition therapy, community nutrition, food service, food production and management of food service operations, chemistry, physiology, plus a variety of supporting coursework in related disciplines. The Food and Nutrition concentration fulfills the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics academic requirements to become a Registered Dietitian (RD), which is also noted Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN).

The Department of Food Science, Nutrition and Health Promotion (FNH) is proud to offer undergraduate education in Food Science and Nutrition. Nutrition is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics (ACEND) of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, 120 South Riverside Plaza, Suite 2000, Chicago, IL 60606-6995; telephone 312-899-0040, ext. 5400, http://www.eatright.org/ACEND. Students who wish to receive a Letter of Intent and/or verification statement from the MSU Didactic Program in Nutrition and Dietetics (DP) must have a minimum grade of "C" or better in all of the required DP courses.

Students in Food Science, Nutrition and Health Promotion have many exciting and diverse career opportunities. Food Science, Nutrition and Health Promotion careers include Research Scientist (Industrial, Government, Academic); Food Engineer; Food Microbiologist; Research and Development; Product Development Technologist; Research Chef; Food Manufacturing Operations Manager; Quality Control Technician; Regulatory Affairs; Food Packaging Specialist; Processing Engineer; Technical Sales in the Food Industry; Technical Services; Public Health/Community Nutritionist; Clinical Nutrition Educator; Nutrition Educator; Registered Dietitian (Pediatric, Cardiovascular, Renal, Private Practice, Sports/Wellness, Weight Management, Business and Industry, and Journalism and Communications); Healthcare/School Food Service Director; Pharmaceutical Sales Representative; and Public Relations and Marketing Specialists.

A major in Food Science, Nutrition and Health Promotion is also an excellent choice for students interested in pursuing pre-professional career paths like Veterinary School, Medical School, Pharmacy, Physical Therapy, Nursing School, and Dental School.

The following concentrations are offered in the Department of Food Science, Nutrition and Health Promotion:

  • Food Processing/Business
  • Food Science
  • Food Safety (pre-vet)
  • Culinology®
  • Food and Nutrition

Food and Nutrition Concentration

The Food and Nutrition concentration prepares students for a wide variety of careers.

B.S. in Culinology®

Major Advisors: Professor Wes Schilling; Clinical Assistant Professor Christine Cord

The Culinology® degree program offers the opportunity to gain a broad education in Food Science and Culinary Arts. It involves the integration of Food Science and Culinary Arts so that students are prepared to work in diverse areas within the food industries -- from experimental research chefs and menu planners to food manufacturing, fine dining, and product development.

Culinology® is an approach to food that blends culinary arts and food technology. Through the blending of these two disciplines, Culinology® seeks to make food taste better -- whether purchased in a supermarket or eaten in a restaurant. Culinology® also seeks to make food more consistent and safer. A primary application of Culinology® is to logically translate sophisticated food concepts, such as those applied in fine dining or in a traditional ethnic cuisine, to items that are on the menus of chain restaurants or those processed for retail sale. Such chain-menu or retail product development is only possible through the astute combination of culinary arts and food science and technology.

According to Jeff Cousminer in Food Product Design Magazine, the word Culinology® was coined by the first president and founder of the Research Chefs Association, Winston Riley. The original meaning of the word was quite different than what it has come to mean today. Originally the word was designed to be a combination of two words, culinary and technology. So the first meaning of the word was the convergence of culinary arts and all technology, which includes communications, chemistry, physiology, economics and many others.

Accredited Culinology® educational programs are offered by many institutions. The curriculum included courses that combine the disciplines of cooking and food science. According to industry professionals, like Kraft’s Harry Crane, Culinology® should “help jump-start product development.”
