Food and Nutrition Major - Nutrition Science Option
The nutrition science option is designed to prepare a student for admission to medical (allopathic or osteopathic), dental, or graduate school with an emphasis on nutrition and biochemistry. A student can receive a verification statement if additional didactic program in dietetics course requirements are met. Although the nutrition science option provides a strong background for most professional schools, students must contact individual schools for specific post-baccalaureate entrance requirements. Information about degree requirements can be obtained from the Health and Human Development advising office, Marga Hosaeus Fitness Center.
