Human Nutrition and Food Option


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 the Human Nutrition and Food 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.

We also offer a Dietetics program and a Human Nutrition Minor.
