3 PhD Programs in Food Safety 2024
Because food is a basic life necessity, it must be kept safe from contamination to prevent illness or infection. Food safety specialists are tasked with observing and testing food samples to ensure the integrity of products in order to protect the general population.
The PhD is a doctoral degree, specifically called a "doctor of philosophy" degree. This is misleading because PhD holders are not necessarily philosophers (unless they earned their degree in philosophy!). That said, PhD recipients are able to engage in thought experiments, reason about problems, and solve problems in sophisticated ways.
