Nutrition, Bachelor of Science Degree

Nutrition combines the study of nutrition, a basic biological science, with studies of economic, political, cultural and biological factors that influence food choices and the nutritional health of humans. As a nutrition student, your studies will address issues relevant to medicine, agriculture and to society at large.

Our program includes two specializations; nutritional science and dietetics.

  • The Nutritional Science specialization prepares students for health-related professional schools, including medicine, dentistry, pharmacy, physical therapy, and public health, as well as graduate research in nutrition and other biological disciplines.
  • The Dietetics specialization prepares students for the second step in becoming a registered dietitian (RD), a dietetic internship; and for other nutrition-related careers.
