We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Master degrees in Food Hygiene equip postgraduates with the skills to maintain and promote human health, through the clean and sanitary handling of food. They may focus on the production, storage and preparation of food in a range of commercial (or domestic) scenarios.
Related subjects include Food & Beverage Production. Entry requirements normally include an undergraduate degree in a relevant subject such as Food Science or Agriculture.
Food Hygiene is essential in securing the safety and quality of the food we consume every day. From the systems related to pre- and post-harvest processes, to the distribution of food after manufacture, it is important that food is protected at each stage of its production.
It is to this end that you will examine the relationship between food and public health – including the scientific, technical and legislative factors which influence food safety.
For example, you may investigate food law and the differences between policies of food safety regulation across different countries. Alternatively, you may analyse matters such as global food security, including the protection of food from diseases and preventing the spread of epidemics such as swine flu.
Careers may include smaller-scale roles in health and safety monitoring, public policy and food regulation.
