This minor provides an opportunity for a non-major to gain a significant orientation to a food, nutrition, and health-related field. The courses in the Nutrition minor have a significant number of prerequisites that should be examined carefully before selecting the minor. Although open to any interested student, the Nutrition minor would be most easily taken by students majoring in a life science discipline such as biology or health and exercise science.
