B.S. FSN - Foods and Nutrition Specialization

The Foods and Nutrition Specialization prepares students for a wide variety of careers in the food and nutrition industry including food processing companies (quality assurance and product development positions), food distributors, food brokerage companies, restaurant and institutional food service, pharmaceutical sales, and nutrition positions not requiring being a Registered Dietitian. It is highly recommended that students discuss possible minors with their academic advisor that would complement this specialization and enhance employment opportunities. Possible minors include food service management, exercise science, community health education, business, and administrative management. Students interested in applying to nursing programs following the completion of this degree are recommended to take BIOL 355 and BIOL 356, Human Anatomy and Physiology, instead of BIOL 201, Human Physiology and BIOL 220, Introductory Cell Biology, plus BIOL 322, Introductory Microbiology.
