The minor in nutrition is designed to complement a major chosen by a student and/or for individuals who wish to establish self-improvement programs by gaining a basic understanding of nutritional studies. A minimum of 18 semester hours is required to complete the minor. A letter grade of at least “C” must be attained in each of the courses in the nutrition minor.
This nutrition minor will not meet educational requirements for qualification as a Registered Dietitian (R.D.). A major in nutrition from an accredited institution, an approved internship, and passing a national exam are all requirements to obtain the R.D. credential.
