Bakery science

Offered at Kansas State University among other schools of higher learning, a degree in bakery science is a lot more than just learning how to make the perfect cinnamon cappuccino chocolate chunk cookies. The degree trains students to hold administrative, research, production and executive positions across the baking industry. A business approach not what you're looking for? No problem. Students can also specialize in cereal chemistry (yes, cereal chemistry!) and become a leading expert in Cap'n Crunch and Raisin Nut Bran. Now that would be a good person to start up a conversation with at a cocktail party.
