Food Sciences

Requirements for the PhD program often involve the student having already obtained a Master’s degree. Additionally, a thesis or dissertation primarily consisting of original academic research must be submitted. In some countries, this work may even need to be defended in front of a panel.

Food sciences focuses on the study of food, with an emphasis on creating reliable, sustainable, and safe food sources. Understanding food sciences may lead to important discoveries in food technology as well as the production and maintenance of a healthy food supply.

Europe is the sixth largest continent and includes 47 countries and assorted dependencies, islands and territories. It is bordered by the Mediterranean Sea to the south, Asia to the east, and the Atlantic Ocean to the West.
