Nutrition, Fitness, and Health

College of Health and Human Sciences

Traditionally, professionals have been trained in only one discipline, but key components of fitness are both physical activity and nutrition. The nutrition, fitness, and health major provides an in-depth study into the combined areas of physical fitness and nutrition. Students develop critical thinking ability; a broad perspective in nutrition, food chemistry, metabolism, and public health nutrition; and good communication skills.

By adding 18 credits to the standard plan of study, students also can meet the academic requirements of the dietetics major as set by the American Dietetic Association to become a registered dietitian.  Many students opt to complete this double major.
