If you are interested in science and health, fascinated by food, and want to work with individuals and families? Do you enjoy learning about human biology along with nutrition, health, and fitness? If so, consider a degree in nutritional science! This pathway is designed to meet Associate in Arts degree requirements with a concentration in Nutrition Science. Nutrition science is the study of how nutrients and food components influence growth, metabolism, health, and disease and also includes human behavior as it relates to food choices. It is a multi-faceted and cross-disciplinary field, encompassing chemistry, biology, physiology, and public health. Nutrition scientists work to develop, extend, and apply all aspects of nutrition through research to improve clinical practice and public health. This degree prepares graduates for entry-level positions in traditional health settings such as hospitals, private medical offices, and public health agencies, as well as integrative health and wellness organizations and companies. It can also prepare graduates to transfer at the junior-level into a food science, nutrition science, or related program at a four-year college or university. If you have a passion for health and wellness, getting a degree in nutrition science may be right for you.
