Human Nutrition and Food
Americans today are concerned about weight control, maintaining a healthy body, and practicing good nutritional habits for better health. Choosing human nutrition and food can be the beginning of a rewarding career. Course work in this area emphasizes physical, biological, and social sciences; math and statistics; and nutrition and food.
A concentration in human nutrition and food may become the foundation for graduate study. This concentration also can serve as an excellent premed option, pre-physical therapy option, or can be combined with a minor in a related field. Employment possibilities include jobs in food product development and management, Cooperative Extension Service, consumer education, sales and marketing, and public relations.
