The Minor in Nutrition is designed for students interested in understanding food, where it comes from, and how it affects health. Students in the minor develop knowledge and skills that supplement their major, and that are helpful for improving overall health in individuals and communities.
Completing the Nutrition minor improves students' marketability in many professional paths, including public health, nursing, kinesiology, psychology, tourism and hospitality, business, education, health communication and journalism, marketing, health professions, and sports and recreational management. The minor also prepares students to pursue graduate training or research in dietetics and nutrition, and to enhance their personal understanding of rapidly changing messages about diet and health.
