Nutrition Science Subplan

Nutritional Science is a subplan under the Foods and Nutrition Major that integrates the core nutrition science courses with additional courses in the laboratory and health sciences. The objective of the Nutrition Science subplan is to provide several preparatory emphases. The Pre-professional emphasis prepares students for a program of study necessary to enter medical, dental, veterinary, Pharm D schools, and graduate programs for the Master of Science, and PhD and or other doctorates. The Animal Nutrition emphasis prepares students for a program of study necessary to enter veterinary and graduate programs for the Master of Science, and Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine. The Nutrition and Health emphasis prepares students for careers in various nutrition or health fields (Nutrition and Health Emphasis). The Nutrition Science Program will promote an appreciation for the multidiscipline nature of modern nutrition research. The program prepares students with a sound scientific understanding of complex nutrition issues related to research, medicine and health.
