The nutrition and fitness concentration prepares students for employment as nutrition and fitness counselors and personal lifestyle coaches in health care settings, commercial establishments, public health settings, or private practice. The curriculum blends a strong science base with course work in exercise science, nutrition, teaching, and counseling. The concentration also provides an excellent background for a graduate program. By the addition of several elective courses, students can meet ACEND didactic course requirements if they meet requirements for FSHN 392.
