The undergraduate program in nutritional sciences provides students with a strong background in the biological, biochemical, physiological, clinical, behavioral, sociological, and psychological dimensions of human nutrition. Students must maintain a cumulative grade-point average of 2.0 or better in all required courses. The program offers three options.

Dietetics.The option in dietetics meets the American Dietetic Association's (ADA) Approved Didactic Program in Dietetics. Upon completion of this option, students are eligible to apply for an ADA Accredited Dietetic Internship or an Approved Pre-Professional Practice Program (AP4) in preparation for the Registration Examination for dietitians. With appropriate electives, this option also can lead to work in the food industry, and after graduate study, positions in cooperative extension, nutrition education, nutrition counseling, or clinical research.

Food Service Administration.The option in food service administration emphasizes the managerial aspects of food service operation. Entry-level employment opportunities include food service marketing, or managing food services in schools, hotels, restaurants, industrial cafeterias, corporations, hospitals, and child- or long-term care facilities.

Nutrition.The option in nutrition emphasizes research and prepares students for graduate study in the life sciences and medical, dental, and veterinary studies, as well as for immediate employment in the biomedical industry.
