About this Major

The Nutrition Studies baccalaureate degree is a degree option for students wishing to study of the science of nutrition without pursuing the registered dietitian nutritionist (RDN) credentials. This B.S. degree is intended for students who are interested in the scientific foundation of nutrition principles. The program is comprised of a 50 credit Nutrition core, which provides students with the nutrition knowledge necessary to be nutrition professionals, including nutrition biochemistry and metabolism, food safety, nutrition education and counseling and nutrition research and evaluation, among others. Students have the flexibility to choose electives and a minor to prepare for further areas of study in health or related fields to enhance their studies, such as exercise science, public health, or entrepreneurship while receiving a strong background in nutrition. This is a major for those who are not pursuing dietetic registration.
