B.S. FSN - Nutrition Science Specialization

The Nutrition Science specialization provides the training necessary to pursue advanced study in nutrition leading towards a career in nutrition research. This option also can be used for those students seeking admission to medical, dental, optometric, nursing and other health-related programs and schools. In addition to the courses listed, a year of introductory physics is also required for admission to most medical schools. Pre-medical students should also maintain contact with the premedical advisor for current information. MATH 153, Pre-Calculus Mathematics I, or an equivalent course needs to be completed before a student is admitted to this specialization.
