The Nutritional Sciences concentration provides a strong background in natural and biomedical sciences and nutrition, making it an appropriate preparation for graduate study, medical school, or a career in nutritional research, biomedical research, or college teaching. This concentration forms the basis for a pre-medical professional program. By addition of several elective courses, students can meet ACEND course requirements if they meet requirements for FSHN 392.
