  • The B.S. in Nutrition Science is a four-year program that emphasizes health promotion and is extremely beneficial in preparing students for the medical profession.  The Nutrition Science program is specially designed to meet the needs of pre-Medicine, pre-Dentistry, and pre-Physician's Assistant students. With a current emphasis on disease prevention and preventative health, many physicians and dentists are specializing in health promotion. The 62-credit program includes courses in biology, chemistry, zoology, nutrition and physics.
  • Nutrition Science graduates may also be employed as teachers or in research laboratories after additional preparation at the graduate level. The B.S. in Nutrition Science does not prepare students for dietetics registration.
