Foods and Nutrition

The foods and nutrition specialization prepares students for a wide variety of careers in the food and nutrition industry including food processing companies (quality assurance and product development positions), food distributors, food brokerage companies, restaurant and institutional food service, pharmaceutical sales, and nutrition positions not requiring being a registered dietitian.

It is highly recommended that students discuss possible minors with their academic advisor that would complement this specialization and enhance employment opportunities.
