Students graduating as nutrition and food science majors have found employment in food manufacturing and processing industries, and in government and community agencies. The federal government projects a shortage of food science graduates through, at least, the end of the century. Food science comprises many fields including developing new products, quality control, ensuring food safety, and many other exciting areas. The bachelors of science track is also an excellent way of fulfilling premedical or predental course requirements.

Students interested in working as nutritional practitioners may enroll in the Coordinated Program in Dietetics. Graduates are eligible to take the national registry exam of the American Dietetic Association and once credentialed, have secured employment in hospitals, health promotion agencies, extended care facilities, and in private practice. Graduates with a B.A. degree have secured employment as supervisors in restaurants, catering operations, and with large food companies in the metro Detroit area.
