Nutrition Education (BS)


Return to: Programs Sorted by Major/Minor

The Department of Athletic Training and Nutrition (ATN) within the Moyes College of Education offers an undergraduate program in Nutrition Education with two emphasis options: Sports Nutrition; and Integrative Nutrition.  Students may declare one or both emphases. The Nutrition Education major program prepares students for a variety of non-Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN) job outcomes and for graduate school to pursue advanced degrees.

The Sport’s Nutrition Educator graduate will have demonstrated competence and knowledge in chemistry, anatomy, physiology, diet analysis and design, sports and fitness nutrition, diet therapy, lifespan nutrition, research, and related exercise science topics with cultural application and sensitivity for individuals and athletes. Information is provided for typical graduate Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN) program pre-requisites. The prerequisites vary somewhat from one graduate program to another and it is the student’s responsibility to ensure that all pre-professional courses fulfill entrance requirements.

Integrative nutrition includes nutrition as it intersects with other related fields to support health and wellbeing of individuals and groups. The Integrative Nutrition Educator graduate will have demonstrated competence and knowledge in diet analysis and design, fitness nutrition, lifespan nutrition, sustainable cooking, and related exercise science, health, child and family studies, botany, microbiology, physical education, recreation, and/or psychology topics with cultural application and sensitivity.
