Dietetics is the scientific study of food intake and preparation with the practical application of diet in relation to health and disease. The dietetics profession affords a professional the opportunity to combine an interest in food, nutrition, fitness, health, and management with meeting the needs of individuals or groups in wellness, illness and physical performance.
The BS in Nutrition and Dietetics major is a four-year, undergraduate degree which combines a strong foundation in the biological and chemical sciences with advanced dietetic course work.
