About

The graduate and post-master's Graduate Certificate - food regulatory affairs and quality assurance at Temple University is intended to enable Regulatory Affairs and Quality Assurance (RAQA) students to receive formal recognition for studying food regulation and quality practices, which expands their regulatory knowledge.

Overview

The Graduate Certificate - food regulatory affairs and quality assurance from Temple University  is also designed for individuals working in Philadelphia's large food industry so they can earn credentials in this highly important and rapidly expanding field. As the name "Food and Drug Administration" (FDA) implies, numerous parallels exist between the regulations and quality practices of drug and food products. Since the 1990s, employees from Philadelphia's food industry have been engaged in the RAQA graduate program, either taking individual courses or pursuing the M.S. degree. Then, in 2011, the Food Safety and Modernization Act (FSMA) encompassed some of the most sweeping reforms in food safety laws in more than 70 years, shifting the focus of food safety from responding to contamination to preventing it.

Future Career

Those completing the certificate gain the knowledge and skills to prepare them to address the laws and regulations set forth in FSMA. Graduates are at an advantage when pursuing an FDA career in food inspection or employment with food manufacturers. They are also prepared to work with the medical foods of the RAQA industry, such as baby formula, dietary supplements, nutraceuticals, and vitamins.
