The Food Science and Industry bachelor’s degree program leads to a Bachelor of Science in Food Science and Industry. Students in the Food Business and Operations Management Option must minor in either business, agribusiness, or agricultural economics as they prepare for management and other opportunities in the food industry.

Completing the program opens up new professional opportunities for graduates in such fields as food science, meat science, and other areas.

To apply for the program, students should have completed about two years of university credit courses from an accredited institution.

K-State’s Bachelor of Science in Food Science and Industry (Science option) is an approved degree plan for military MOS 68R Veterinary Food Inspection Specialists
