BAKERY SCIENCE MINOR
DISTANCE EDUCATION – K-STATE GLOBAL CAMPUS
World renowned within the grain, feed, and allied industries for the quality and innovation of its education, K-State’s Department of Grain Science and Industry is excited to also deliver the same caliber of education online to students around the world. A bakery science minor is available to students in the process of receiving a related degree from an accredited university. This opportunity is also available to graduates of accredited programs.
The grain industry as a whole is experiencing a shortage of employees with adequate skill sets and experience. With continued growth, due to new outlets of commodities, there is a need to educate new hires and current employees. A minor in bakery science from Kansas State University provides students with a knowledge base that includes exploring the functionality of ingredients in baked goods and the characteristics of cereal grains. Those involved with industry companies, associations, and trade groups may be interested in making the baking science minor available to non-K-State graduates so that employees without a grain based background learn basic information to better understand the industry as well as receive college credit for a minor.
To qualify for admission into the bakery science minor program, students must:
- Be a current K-State undergraduate student, post-baccalaureate K-State graduate or non-K-State graduate of an accredited university with a minimum 2.0 undergraduate GPA
- Be approved by the K-State Grain Science and Industry Undergraduate Program Committee in order to be eligible to receive the minor
- Have completed all necessary graduate requirements from an accredited university
- Take a minimum of eleven credits from KSU plus a maximum of six transfer credits approved by the department for a total of seventeen hours to complete the minor requirements
