Health and Nutrition Sciences
Make a difference in your community — local or global — through health education.
You realize that proper food and nutrition are the basics of good health, and you are looking for a career where you can help people realize their full potential through these fundamentals. Our rigorous academic courses, internships and research opportunities will prepare you to contribute as health professionals to local, national and international communities. You will choose courses from topics ranging from nutrition and world food problems, to trauma and traumatic grief, to law and public health; participate in health promotion programs; and conduct research in our foods and physiology labs. As the digital age enables information about health and nutrition to be developed and disseminated faster than ever before, our programs offer a framework in which you’ll be able to expertly assess facts and theories and apply them for the benefit of all people.
