If you enjoy planning or preparing food, developing new food products, catering, or managing the business aspects of food service, here is the program for you. Nutrition and foods majors may concentrate in Food Systems Management, an option which leads to careers in the food service and hospitality industry through a curriculum which combines the theoretical aspects of management with food production and distribution.
Majors, as well as minors in Nutrition and Foods, gain direct experience in food service settings not only in the foods lab but also in food service operations. A capstone experience comes in the senior year with an individually planned, 300-hour* internship in a food systems operation reflective of the student’s career goals.
Graduates in this area become directors of food service operations in resorts, hospitals, hotels, colleges and public schools, etc., in addition to positions with contract food companies.

*Capstone experience hours decreased to 200 hours with the 2019-2020 Program of Study.
