According to College Reviews, “Food science offers a range of rewarding career opportunities for people with a variety of food science degrees and nutrition degrees. In the United States, the need of skilled and competent leaders in the field of food science remains keen to address this problem, due to the alarming rates of obesity, heart disease, diabetes, dietary disease, and widespread malnutrition.

A motivated student has a wide variety of career options, including private work, public facilities, hospitals, nursing centers, clinics, hospice care, wellness centers, corporate cafeterias, international food organizations, government agencies, education, etc.”

With the rise in obesity, and other serious health issues this particular educational program is only going to rise both in demand, and in salary. It’s a great selection.
