The Nutrition and Society track prepares students to pursue careers or graduate training in nutrition, public health, social work, education, and other applied professional careers. Students will be prepared to work in community nutrition programs such as Head Start, Supplemental Food Assistance Program (SNAP), Elderly Nutrition Program, and other community based programs. Students are also able to join the Peace Corps; pursue careers in teaching health or science; wellness or consumer industries; help develop food policies locally or internationally; or pursue an entrepreneurial nutrition practice. In addition to the core nutrition and science courses, students in this track will take community nutrition and international nutrition courses, plus can choose among many relevant electives in public health, kinesiology, sociology, food science, plant and soil science, resource economics, anthropology, or hospitality and tourism management.
Students who are interested in medical, dental school, PA school or other advanced medical education may have additional requirements as recommended by the Pre-Medical/Pre-Dental/Pre-Health advising program. See more information about pre-med/pre-health requirements on the Academic Advising page.
