A Nutrition minor can be an excellent addition to almost any major, whether it be Biology, Psychology, Education, Nursing, Communication, or another.

Students are encouraged to make an appointment with a faculty member to discuss the Nutrition major or minor. Faculty in the department would be delighted to talk with you, work out a four-year plan, and answer any questions you might have.
