Rise early and milk the cows. Process the milk; use some to make cheese and yogurt. Eat it knowing what it took to create the product. Research it – through taste and otherwise – and strive to make it better. This is what the Food Science and Technology program does: teaches about food beyond the initial taste test. Students in the program create the products and learn to appreciate the entire process through the food science technology available on campus.
The Mediterranean is an excellent region to study food, as many products here have been enjoyed for thousands of years, and as the region changes, so must food technology. Taste unfamiliar foods and expand the palate. Learn the culture of Greece through what the people eat and the foods they grow and produce. Think beyond the taste and explore the cultural and nutritional significance of what is served, why it is served, and how it is served. By eating and studying the food of Greece, one can study the entire Greek lifestyle and experience.
