Nutrition & Dietetics, B.S.

Bachelor of Science: Nutrition Track

There are two options in this major: Nutrition or Dietetics.   Drawing on chemistry, biochemistry and physiology, nutritionists study the body’s requirements for nutrients throughout life, and the effects of inadequate intakes on health and well-being. Nutritionists also study social, economic, cultural, and psychological implications of food and eating.  Three tracks include Nutrition Science, Health Promotion, or Foods.  See http://cels.uri.edu/nfs/Ugrad.aspx for more information.  The Dietetics option is for those planning to become a Registered Dietitian and is the application of knowledge about food and nutrition to help people achieve and maintain health.
