Nutritional Biochemistry and Metabolism
Bachelor  of  Science

  • 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 BS 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 a pre-health curriculum
