Food and Nutritional Sciences: Food and Nutrition Emphasis (BS)

Program Description

The Food and Nutritional Science emphasis provides a broad background for those students interested in food and nutrition, but who are not seeking the registered dietitian (RD) credential.

Students with this degree may work in clinical, research, public health, or food service settings. The degree also provides a good background for those interested in nursing, dental hygiene, the allied health professions such as occupational therapy and physical therapy, culinary programs, and food science. Many of these graduate programs have additional admission requirements, so students should plan appropriately.
