Background

As UP Mindanao is envisioned to grow into a comprehensive University, its academic programs shall put emphasis on science, technology, agriculture, agriculture and medicine so that it can assist the region in the process of nation building.

As new global issues emerge, the food industry is beset with concerns in waste reduction, food safety, food security, development of new products and the like.  The University believes that the MS Food Science program can assist in building up human resource who are equipped to find solutions to these problems. The Master’s Program is responsive to the needs of the food industry and the academe.

Objectives

The MS Food Science is intended for food entrepreneurs, personnel of government agencies involved in food industries, policy makers, the academe and research institutions. It aims to:

  • Train manpower than can lead in value added industries, research & development and manufacturing in Mindanao;
  • Provide technical services to food processors & farmers actively involved in food production; and
  • Develop faculty of institutions in the area who are offering the undergraduate course in Food Technology.
    • Cover letter addressed to the Dean, signifying intent to apply and the degree sought
    • Original or Certified Copy of Official Transcript of Records
    • Two sealed letters of recommendation (GS-Form 2) from  former professors, supervisors or colleagues
    • For foreign applicants: Certification of medium of instruction (in previous degree) by the University Registrar or results of TOEFL (min score: 600) or IELTS (min score: 6.5)
    • Non-refundable application fee (Php 200.00 for Filipino applicants and US$25.00 for foreign applicants)

Admission Requirements

Applicants for admission must be holders of a bachelor’s degree in Food Science and Technology or related disciplines  with a general weighted average of 2.50 or better.

A duly accomplished Application form (GS Form -1) must be submitted with the following documents:

 Note: A student with inadequate background in food science will be required to take additional courses without credit.

BS Biology

Written by Administrator. Posted in About Us

PROGRAM PROFILE

The Department of Biological Sciences and Environmental Studies (BSES) offers a 4-year BS Biology degree program with two major fields of specialization to choose from, Ecology and Cell Biology. Areas of study in Ecology include life forms in terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems. The Cell Biology division has recently been expanded to include not only studies of life forms at cellular level, but also molecular studies of plant, animal and microbial life forms.

The BS Biology curriculum also includes the conduct of an undergraduate thesis which provides the students the opportunity to perform research work along their chosen field of specialization under the guidance of their selected faculty adviser.

JOB OPPORTUNITIES

Students may proceed to pursue a medical degree after graduation. Other graduates may pursue careers in either government and private institutions as teachers or researchers, or in government organizations engaged in biological conservation and/or advocacy activities.
