Nutrition and Dietetics

Program Overview

If you’re passionate about food, nutrition, and health and want a rewarding career helping others, consider the Nutrition and Dietetics program. Upon successful completion of this program, you’ll be able to apply nutrition principles and knowledge in a general community setting — focusing on improving the well-being and healthy lifestyles of others. If you wish to continue your education and specialize in nutrition, this program provides the first two years of a four-year university curriculum.

This program will provide foundational nutrition training in non-clinical settings. Our experienced instructors will teach you basic nutrition guidelines and concepts of energy balance and fuel metabolism with a focus on improving health, managing weight, and enhancing athletic performance. You will also learn about the nutritional requirements at each stage of the life cycle and evaluate alternate food diets in relation to standard nutritional guidelines. You will also acquire the knowledge to be able to examine basic human physiology as it relates to nutrition and exercise, and so much more!
