The Bachelor of Science Program in Nutrition and Food Science offers three majors or areas of concentration. Growing public awareness and involvement in decisions about food products has led to the expanding career opportunities for nutrition and food science professionals in areas such as research, policy making, production, testing, manufacturing, marketing, education, and communication in both the public and private sector.
