Nutrition

Overview

Apply the Key Concepts of Nutrition to Your Discipline

Nutrition is the study of nutrients in food, how the body uses them and the relationship that exists among diet, health and disease. Students minoring in nutrition will study the link between good nutrition and good health as well as how nutrition is the conduit to maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

The nutrition minor integrates well with academic disciplines that relate directly or indirectly to the health care of the individual, regardless of age, since nutrition provides an important piece of the holistic approach to one’s health care. The nutrition minor is intended to augment an already existing declared major in another discipline, such as exercise science, biology, nursing, psychology or social work.
