The Bachelor of Science in Nutrition degree (BScN) program is designed for third-year students seeking to develop an in-depth understanding of nutrition. Our curriculum features three core threads: nutrition, natural sciences and social sciences. The nutrition thread is a unique blend of contemporary science and evidence-based medicine focusing on individual and community nutrition, human nutritional requirements, the link between diet and disease, food systems, food security, nutritional epidemiology and more.

The natural sciences thread includes anatomy and physiology, organic chemistry, biochemistry and genetics. These courses provide a solid scientific understanding of the human body and the basic principles of health and disease, and provide fundamentals in research, and scientific and professional communication. The social sciences thread highlights the interpersonal and professional growth of the student with a strong focus on the development of cultural competency skills, ethical decision-making, expository writing, self-reflection and self-management.

Your studies culminate with a final capstone project, the stepping stone to the next phase of your career or continued graduate study.
