Bachelor of Science in Nutrition

Designed for students who would like to study the science of nutrition without pursuing dietetic registration - a valuable enhancement if you want to go into public health fields, work as personal trainers, apply for medical or physician assistant school, pursue counseling careers or work in food service management (without the RDN credential).

The BS Nutrition is a good choice for a double major with Nursing or Sport and Exercise Science, those in health professions who would like to integrate nutrition into their pre-degree preparation, and current Nutrition minors who would like to change to a double degree.

Pre-Health Advising at UNC helps students prepare to apply to a wide range of health professional schools.  Students should seek advising from both an advisor in their major and an advisor on the Pre-Health Advising Committee.
