Culinology® is the blending of the disciplines of food science and culinary arts. By combining the knowledge of basic science with the creativity of culinary arts, students develop a unique skill set that will enable them to define the future of food through the creative process of developing new food products.
At Clemson, Culinology® is integrated into our Food Science Degree program as an emphasis area. Students choosing this emphasis area take additional culinary focused courses along with their traditional food science courses like food chemistry that have Culinology® integrated into their teaching (i.e. the science and art of food emulsions). Students interested in new product development and entrepreneurship typically choose this emphasis area.
