Department of Nutrition

As one CASE School of Medicine's Basic Sciences Departments, our mission is to promote human health through education and research by bridging the gap between medicine and public health.

Case Western Reserve University

Nutritional Biochemistry and Metabolism

Bachelor Arts degree

  • DEGREE FOCUS

The study of nutrients and their metabolic functions.

This degree program also prepares the students for graduate studies in nutrition or metabolic research, or for further training for careers in medicine, dentistry, and other allied health professions.

The BA in Nutritional Biochemistry and Metabolism is easily combined with majors such as Psychology, Sociology Chemistry, Biology, or Communication Sciences. It will also easily accommodate the requirements of a pre-health curriculum
