Bakery science graduates complete baking technology courses and chemistry and biochemistry labs, along with other university courses, giving them a broad university education with a robust science background. The curriculum combined with internship experiences prepares graduates for the complicated management decisions required in the baking and allied industries.
"The relatively small number of majors makes it easier to develop good relationships with professors and other bakery science students. I chose this major not only for the chance to bake in classes, but also to understand the science behind baking products. Hands-on classroom experiences will prepare me for the real world."
