Tourism and Hospitality, MSc

Graduate University of Guelph
Decision Date: July 27, 2012

The two-year, thesis-based master’s degree is a new research program that will provide a range of adaptable and transferable skills, and equip students with a broad knowledge of the theory and practice of tourism and hospitality research, preparing them for research and/or administrative careers in the public and private sectors. It also represents a potential stepping-stone to the PhD in Management. Each course in the program will involve a research component and be evaluated in part through an assignment that fosters research and scholarship. These assignments will vary in emphasis but, collectively, will encompass all facets of tourism research, including theoretical concept assessment, conceptual model development, methodology selection, research design, data analysis, and presentation of results.

Food Industry Management, BBRM (Honours) and Co-op Option

Undergraduate University of Guelph

The Food Industry Management major is a joint venture by two departments (Food Science and Food, Agricultural and Resource Economics) in the Ontario Agricultural College, reflecting the interdisciplinary nature of the program, which encompasses the science of food safety, quality control, processing and innovation and the management of food businesses, including operations and marketing. In order to address current and future provincial and global needs of the agricultural food industry for technically and scientifically-informed, highly competent managers, the program provides students with a solid foundation in basic science, applied food science, business and management practice, as well as supply chain and operations management. The program offers a mix of theoretical, experiential and applied study and both co-op and non-co-op format and affords students the opportunity to tailor courses to their career goals and interests.

Neuroscience, BSc (Honours)

Undergraduate University of Guelph
Decision Date: January 27, 2017

The brain remains the most poorly understood organ in the human body and the source of many challenging disorders and diseases affecting health.  The BSc Honours in Neuroscience provides a foundation in the natural sciences and an opportunity to develop advanced knowledge of nervous system structure and function, and the skills required for independent inquiry within neuroscience. The specialization is unique in its emphasis on integrative/interdisciplinary problem solving. Through the use of electives, students may structure a program that emphasizes molecular and biomedical neuroscience, behavioural and cognitive neuroscience, or comparative neuroscience.

The major prepares students for  graduate research and professional programs in health science (medical, physiotherapy, pharmacy, veterinary medicine, nursing), post-graduate work in neuroscience, and provides a strong foundation for students wishing to pursue careers in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries, public health, teaching, and scientific publishing & journalism.
