The Food Science and Nutrition Program in the Department of Nutrition, Exercise, and Health Sciences offers: The Bachelor of Science in Food Science and Nutrition. Within the Bachelor of Science in Food Science and Nutrition are two specializations. The Foods and Nutrition Specialization provides a broad area of expertise and prepares students for a wide variety of careers in the food and nutrition industries. The Foods and Nutrition specialization also is designed to allow students to complete a minor in a field that relates to professional career advancement. The Dietetics Specialization (plus ANTH 130, ECON 101, and PSY 101), is accredited by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (AND)/ Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics (ACEND) as a Didactic Program in Dietetics and prepares students to apply for an AND accredited supervised practice program (Dietetic Internships). After completing these two steps and passing the Registration Exam, students become Registered Dietitians.
