Human Nutrition

Description
The human nutrition concentration provides a sound foundation in the basic sciences and nutrition, but no food service courses are required. Students will develop a greater understanding of how nutrition contributes to healthy lifestyles and disease prevention. This program would be useful to students seeking further education in allied health or medical fields.

This concentration does not meet the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Didactic Program in Dietetics (DPD) requirements, and thus does not qualify a student to apply for a Dietetic Internship.

Requirements

  • Students must complete a minimum of 19 credit hours including a minimum of 12 upper division hours for this concentration.
  • All courses must be completed with a grade of “C” (2.00) or higher.
  • Additional prerequisite requirements: CHM 101 or 113, BIO 201, BIO 202 and BCH 361.
