Human Nutrition
Bachelor of Arts

  • DEGREE FOCUS

The BA in Nutrition differs from the BS in Nutrition in 1 aspect:  
It does NOT require (CHEM 113) Principles of Chemistry Laboratory or  Statistics.

This degree program offers the opportunity to study the Science of Nutrition in a more flexible way than the BS program.  It is particularly well-suited for students who wish to complete a double major, or who are interested in a dual-degree program (see Handbook for details about these degree options).
