Food Marketing Five-Year Cooperative Major

An alternative five-year Bachelor’s degree program combines on-campus classroom study with alternate periods of gainful employment in the food or allied industries. After finishing the freshman year, students complete three cooperative work experiences. Students in this program not only receive a well-rounded education but will also have the unique opportunity of applying classroom learning to work situations and vice versa as they gain as much as a full year of professional experience prior to graduation.
