Nutritional Science Program

The Nutritional Science option, a B.S. degree program, integrates nutritional science, biology, chemistry, physics and human anatomy/physiology. The basic science foundation upon which this curriculum is built prepares students for earning the M.S. or Ph.D. degree at Tuskegee University or other institutions in either applied community nutrition or nutritional biochemistry. A common freshman year is shared with Food Science majors. During the sophomore year, students take courses in specialized areas of nutrition and related sciences. Most graduates have career opportunities as nutritionists in governmental and non-governmental organizations, public health facilities or in the food industry. Individuals with advanced degrees may elect to work at a college/university in teaching or research, in the private sector, or with a branch of government.
