Bachelor of Science in Dietetics and Nutrition, Nutrition Science Track

list

The Nutrition Science track emphasizes the basic sciences which form the foundation of the nutrition science core curriculum. Students will explore food, human physiology, metabolism and study the complex relationship between nutrients/non-nutrients in foods in the context of optimal health and disease. This track will serve to develop knowledge in the basic nutritional sciences without specific training in the practice aspects of the dietetics profession and will prepare students who wish to pursue graduate research in nutrition/biomedical sciences or careers in medicine or allied health.

The student enrolled in the Nutrition Science track will not meet licensure requirements for qualifications as a nutritionist in the State of Florida nor meet the requirements for any Didactic Program in Dietetics leading to the Registered Dietitian Nutrition credential.
