To complete the minor, students must select 8 additional credits in Nutrition. Students may select these 8 credits from any of the courses offered in the department with the exception of Nutrition 120: Medical Terminology, which does not count toward the minor.

Nutrition 225: Experimental Food Science (4): Fall is highly recommended for minors to give an in depth understanding of food composition and food chemistry.

Students should talk with a faculty member in the Nutrition department no later than fall semester of the sophomore year to assist in developing a four year plan that accommodates the minor in nutrition, and to advise students on elective courses in the department that fit with the student’s interests and academic learning goals.
