North Dakota State University graduate faculty who participate in the food safety programs are from multiple colleges, and cover several areas of expertise including microbiological sciences, communication, public health, food and nutrition, and plant sciences.
As our Food Safety becomes more globalized and complex, it is increasingly important for public health professionals to engage consumers and members of the food industry including farmers, food processors, and food service workers. Monitoring and preventing the spread of foodborne disease, disseminating and enforcing key laws or regulations, and education the public on safe food handling practices are top priorities.
These priorities can be achieved through utilization of innovative methods in the areas of molecular microbiology, biotechnology, science-based risk assessment and management, hygiene principles, food safety laws and regulations, and active surveillance programs. The NDSU MPH degree with a specialization in Food Safety will provide students with the necessary skills and knowledge to become vital frontline members working to keep our population and food systems safe and secure.
