The B.S. in Nutritional Sciences curriculum is designed to provide students with a strong background in nutrition, food, biological sciences, and research. Graduates are well prepared to enter careers in health and nutrition-related research, community nutrition, or to continue in graduate-level studies.
Students planning to pursue the master’s coordinated program in nutrition and dietetics (CP) should follow the B.S. in Dietetics curriculum.
Note that most positions involving the use of medical nutrition therapy and specialized nutrition counseling services require a registered dietitian nutritionist (RDN) credential. Students interested in these career paths should pursue the Coordinated Program in Nutrition and Dietetics.
