Curricula and Professions in Food, Nutrition, and Health

Students in the food science major, the only such major offered in New Jersey, study the chemical, biological, and engineering aspects of food and also learn about the latest innovations and ethical issues in foods and food processing. Options within the major prepare students for graduate study and for various careers in the food industry. The nutritional sciences major provides students with a strong background in the biological, biochemical, physiological, clinical, behavioral, sociological, and psychological dimensions of human nutrition. Options within the major can prepare students for the Registration Examination for Dieticians, an opportunity that is available at no other college in New Jersey. The nutritional sciences program also prepares students for work in the food industry, and after graduate study, positions in cooperative extension, nutrition education, nutrition counseling, or clinical research. Nutritional sciences majors can also prepare themselves for graduate study in the life sciences and medical, dental, and veterinary studies, as well as for immediate employment in the biomedical industry.
