Do you love food? Do you love it so much you want to learn the science behind it? And how food is digested and absorbed? Would you like to help people make good food choices and stay healthy? If so, then you may be interested in our two-year program.
You'll take courses in several different areas, including chemistry, biology, sociology and psychology. After you complete the program on our campus, you could apply to one of two programs through the University of Pittsburgh's School of Health and Rehabilitation
Sciences (SHRS). The B.S. in Nutrition or the combined B.S./M.S. in Dietitian Nutritionist.
Once you earn your degree, you can pretty much work anywhere: In a hospital or health care center you'll make sure patients receive proper nutrition. In an industry or business where you'll research new products. For the government where you can develop
food and nutrition policies.
