BS in Global Public Health/Nutrition and Dietetics

The Global Public Health/Nutrition and Dietetics combined major prepares students to apply current knowledge, policy, and research about food and nutrition toward the improvement of the health of populations locally and around the world. The major aligns with the mission of the Nutrition and Dietetics Program to educate students on the role of food, nutrition, and health in society.

Students will study a variety of topics such as food production, technology, epidemiology, diet assessment, health policy, and nutrition counseling. Students will also work closely with an adviser to select the right mix of electives to compliment individual interests and career paths.

Global Public Health/Nutrition graduates will be well-prepared for entry-level positions in health care, community programs, health departments, school food service, private practice, publishing, public relations, or other businesses that involve nutrition and public health. It also offers preparation for dietetic internships that enable students to become eligible to take the examination to become a Registered Dietitian (RD), as well as further graduate work in nutrition, public health, or other related disciplines.
