Nutrition students not only become proficient in the roles of electrons, atoms, molecules, genes, cells and organs, but also complex organisms. Nutrition students examine the links between life science and health, behavior, education, population, culture, and economics.
There are six specialization options for the Bachelor of Science in nutrition. All options combine a prescribed common core of science and nutrition courses with additional coursework in the area of specialization.
Students can also pursue a Bachelor of Science and Arts degree program in nutrition. The BSA is a cross-disciplinary degree for students interested in combining core sciences with coursework in the fine arts, liberal arts, communications, or business.
This undergraduate training will prepare students for careers in industry, research and provide a solid foundation for further study in graduate school.
