What will I learn?

The Food and Nutrition degree plan are for those students who have a passion for nutrition but are interested in pursuing a less clinical route. This track will allow students to minor in areas such as child and family development, communications, culinary, health science and many more. This track does not allow a student to pursue further education as a registered dietitian; however, many students can return to take the required courses to become verified through the DPD program.

The food and nutrition degree is for students who enjoy the study of nutrition but do not desire to become registered dietitians.
