This minor provides a knowledge base for individuals interested in nutrition science and health issues and may assist the student who is interested in pursuing an advanced degree. The minor does not provide enough nutrition course work or the supervised practice (approximately 1000 hours) required to be eligible for the registered dietitian (RD) credential. Nor does this minor provide a license to practice therapeutic nutrition. For more information about accredited dietetics programs leading to the RD or LND credential, please visit: www.eatright.org.
For more information about this minor, please contact Dr. Kathleen Laquale in the department of Health and Kinesiology.
Students must achieve a minimum grade of “C-” in all courses taken toward the minor.
