New! Nutritional Sciences Undergraduate Minor
The Nutritional Sciences Program is pleased to announce the launch of its new undergraduate minor. The Nutritional Sciences minor is available to students in any major and provides students with a foundation of knowledge in nutrition science, food systems, food studies, and population health. Through an examination of food and nutrition policies and practices that affect sustainable diets and long term health, students will gain a multidisciplinary perspective of the food environment, including the interplay of food and nutrition, human behavior, business, culture and the environment.
