Undergraduate Food and Nutrition Sciences
Division of Food and Nutrition Sciences
Students interested in a major in food and nutrition sciences have multiple options of study to best meet their career path goals. Students enrolled in the applied nutrition major choose a concentration: dietetics, culinary, or environmental nutrition. Students interested in a pre-medicine/pre-professional undergraduate experience with a nutrition emphasis choose the nutrition major. Graduates of either applied nutrition or nutrition receive a Bachelor of Science in food and nutrition sciences degree. There is an option to minor in applied nutrition.
The Food and Nutrition Sciences undergraduate program houses the Diabetes Certificate and Sports Nutrition Certificate. For more information on these certificates, please visit the links below:
Adding the Diabetes Certificate
Students interested in pursuing the Diabetes Certificate (CTDIAB) may obtain an application form from their college’s student services office. After completing the application and obtaining the certificate coordinator’s signature, they should return the form to their college’s student services office. Each academic period on the student’s DARS (Degree Audit Reporting System) Report, students can track their progress in the certificate program. Students must receive a C or better in both core and elective courses to receive the certificate. The undergraduate Diabetes Certificate will be awarded upon graduation if the student has successfully completed the requirements, and a notation of the certificate will be recorded on the student’s transcript.
