Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.)

Nutritional and Nutraceutical Sciences (NANS)

Department of Human Biology and Nutritional Sciences, College of Biological Science.

The Nutritional and Nutraceutical Sciences major is concerned with understanding the contribution of food, beverage and nutritional supplement consumption to growth, development of optimal biological function, maintenance of health, and treatment of disease.

If lacking the fundamentals of word processing, spread sheet use and data management, the student should select CIS*1200 as early in the program as possible.
