Nutrition & Food Science Department


Located in Beemon Hall on the Raymond Campus, the Nutrition and Food Science Department explores how food can be used to nourish the body and promote health and longevity. Students can also get information and be advised on degrees and careers in nutrition and food science.

We strive to have students learn as much as possible to improve their understanding of nutrition and food science and to expose them to alternative career paths.

Our nutrition courses are offered in both classroom and online formats. These courses help to prepare students for admission to food science, nursing, dietetics, sports training, pre-medicine, pre-dentistry, and other health-related programs.

Our nutrition courses are currently listed under “FCS” (Family and Consumer Sciences) and “BIO” (Biology).
