Minor in Nutrition

About the Minor

The minor in Nutrition is designed for students interested in enhancing their major with an application in human nutrition. The Nutrition minor should be especially attractive to students in the premedical, biological, and behavioral neurological sciences because it provides a background for enhanced employment and post-baccalaureate study opportunities in areas closely allied to their basic disciplines.

The minor consists of 25.0 credits. Interested students should consult with a faculty member within the Department of Nutrition Sciences to schedule courses appropriate for their background and goals.
