Academic Advising

The Department of Food Science believes that academic advising is most effective in-person. Faculty and staff are prepared to help with curricular planning and course access; major and degree questions; discussion of independent study and lab research experience; and navigating internship and scholarship opportunities.

If you are not currently enrolled at UW-Madison or considering a Food Science Major, we suggest contacting the Department of Food Science directly at or 608-262-3046 to make an appointment with a prospective advisor.

*Declared Food Science majors must meet with their assigned advisor prior to registration.
