Nutrition Degrees

A degree in nutrition/dietetics provides students with a strong science background, laboratory experiences and community and clinical opportunities related to human health and nutrition.

The curriculum of the nutritional science program draws upon a variety of nutrition-related disciplines, including human nutrition, biology, physiology, and chemistry. With the exception of the general education requirements and a set of core courses, the course requirements for the nutritional science option are largely unspecified, allowing you to pursue topic areas of interest. In this program of study, you will be encouraged to complete a diverse set of advanced courses relating to the nutritional sciences, offering a broad perspective on current knowledge of nutrient requirements and function and how this knowledge can be put to use.
