HUMAN NUTRITION PROGRAM: 2020-2021 

The B.Sc. in Human Nutrition is an applied science program which integrates core requirements in foods, nutrition and related areas with studies in biology, chemistry, statistics, business, humanities and social sciences. BSc HNU students may select the professional dietetic concentration in year 2 and apply for the Integrated Dietetic Internship (IDI) program in year 3. Students with broader interests in food and nutrition can tailor their course selection toward one of the many career paths described below (e.g. education, pre-medical, other health professions, entrepreneurship, kinesiology).
