What Can I Study?

The Health Sciences Department offers two concentrations for a Nutrition degree.

  • Nutrition (Dietetics), B.S.
  • Nutrition (Sports Nutrition), B.S. 

Students who wish to work in the areas of fitness and sports may select the sports nutrition concentration; while those wishing to become registered dietitians must select the dietetics concentration. 

The Nutrition major creates opportunities for students who wish to complete advanced degrees in the field, seek employment upon graduation, or wish to complete a liberal arts degree with the opportunity to study nutrition.   

A minor in nutrition is available for those students who wish to combine nutrition with other areas of study. The nutrition minor is especially attractive for those who are interested food and nutrition for the health of their future patients, clients and students. Individuals who plan to be involved in wellness policies and fitness in their careers should consider the addition of this minor.
