Nutritional Sciences Undergraduate Program
Nutrition is an integrative science with the overall objective of improving the health and well-being of individuals and groups. Nutritional inquiry encompasses not only the roles of electrons, atoms, molecules, genes, cells, organs, and complex organisms in biological life processes but also the links between life science and health, behavior, education, population, culture, and economics. The Bachelor of Science in Nutrition degree program includes five options: dietetics, nutritional sciences, nutrition and business, nutrition honors and international nutrition. All options combine a prescribed common core of science and nutrition courses with additional coursework in the area of specialization.
