Nutrition, B.S.

Nutrition is an applied science that draws from areas of biology, chemistry, math, biochemistry, anatomy, physiology and microbiology and applies scientific knowledge to human health and wellness while studying the social, economic, cultural, and psychological implications of food and eating. By blending scientific knowledge, human health, clinical application, public policy and experiential learning, students are prepared for pre-health professional degrees, graduate study, and careers in public health, government, or the community.
