Nutrition (Minor)

The nutrition minor provides the student with a strong background in nutrition as related to the student's field of study. The minor is especially suited to students in health care fields other than nutrition, including students who wish to work with eating disordered individuals, future educators and coaches, future journalists, and anyone else who may need a strong background in nutrition.
