Nutrition, Dietetics and Food Sciences

Nutrition, Dietetics & Food Sciences affect just about every person, every day. From creating healthier diets to preparing better tasting foods to gaining greater understanding of disease and increased food safety, our department can prepare you for a great career in the "science of food." 

In our department, students learn of the engineering, biology and physical science of food through our Food Science major. Students can also become well-versed in clinical and community nutrition as well as food service management with our Dietetics degree. Our Nutrition degree explores the molecular and cellular levels of food, helping students to truly appreciate the building blocks of food and their impacts on consumers. Whatever interests you about Nutrition, Dietetics, and Food Science, we can offer you a hands-on learning experience with faculty dedicated to helping teach the next generation.
