The science of nutrition seeks to understand the connections between diet and health, and to use this knowledge to improve the well-being of individuals, communities, and populations. Our undergraduate program spans the breadth of nutrition science from biochemical pathways to community applications to clinical practice through three concentration options: Biomedical Nutrition Science, Community Nutrition, and Dietetics. Each of our concentratio­ns equips students with excellent skills in communication, critical thinking, and teamwork, all of which are highly valued by today’s employers.

Interested in earning both a BS and MS in an accelerated time frame? Both our Biomedical Nutrition Science and Community Nutrition concentrations offer accelerated combined bachelor’s/master’s degree options that allow qualified students to earn both a BS and MS degree in just five years. Dietetics offers a five-year option as well with a competitive application process and culminating in Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN) exam eligibility. These programs save tuition dollars and give students a competitive edge when entering the job market.

The current curricula for all nutrition major concentrations leading to a BS degree in health and human sciences can be found in the undergraduate catalog and on the CEHHS Office of Advising and Student Services web page.
