The minor in nutrition is designed for undergraduate students from a variety of disciplines across the university who wish to expand and apply their understanding in key concepts of nutrition and how they intersect with public health, clinical applications, food policy, behavioral counseling, or health communication.
The minor is comprised of five courses. It requires a foundational course in Human Nutrition (HSCI 1105) that instructs students in the basic principles of human nutrition. Students expand foundational concepts in additional required courses to apply knowledge of nutrition in clinical settings and to public health initiatives. Following the initial core courses, students complete two elective courses, at least one at 3000 level or higher, developing deeper knowledge and specific professional skills.
