Interested in nutrition and health, consider completing a minor in Nutrition.
A minor in Nutrition can be beneficial to individuals who are pursuing an undergraduate degree in many health-related fields and pre-professional programs. It may also assist students who are interested in attending graduate or medical school by providing a strong science knowledge base. The minor would benefit students in the hospitality and/or food service industries. The minor does not allow students to become a registered dietitian, but it provides a strong fundamental knowledge of metabolism and the complex interaction between foods and body systems.
