For a FS minor with an emphasis in food processing it is recommended that students select the FSHN 461 and FSHN 462 option. However, FSHN 461 and FSHN 462 have prerequisites that not every student seeking a minor may choose to meet. Note: Students cannot take both FSHN 461 and FSHN 462 and FSHN 465.
