Food Science is a major in food and the science, technology and engineering that goes into it to make it delicious. If you've ever wanted to create a new cereal, ice cream flavor or menu item, here's your chance to give it shot. Food scientists make our foods safer, healthier, more tempting and less likely to spoil. With a high demand for food marketed in processed form rather than as fresh or raw products, you can pursue a career in Food Science that is not only valued, but oh so yummy.
