Special Course Offerings
In July, K-State Olathe is offering a food science "boot camp" for undergraduate and graduate students living in Greater Kansas City. It consists of food science courses and lab work that are taught in an accelerated format at the K-State Olathe campus.
K-State students earn academic credit that counts toward their degree program, and non-K-State students can have the credit transferred to another university.
Students can enroll in the lecture and the lab independently.
Food science courses available
Both courses can be taken for either undergraduate or graduate credit. These courses also can be taken as electives for other programs that require STEM electives. Students can choose to enroll in both courses or just one course.
