Emphasis in Nutrition

One feature of the bachelor of biomedical science degree program at NUHS, is the option to choose an “Emphasis in Nutrition.”

Students choosing this emphasis will see it reflected on their NUHS diploma. To earn an emphasis in nutrition you will need to have 19 hours of credit in nutrition courses such as:

  • Sports and Physical Performance Nutrition
  • Nutrition in the Life Cycle
  • Nutrition in Health and Disease
  • Food Science
  • Introduction to Botanicals and Herbs
  • Cultural Perspectives of Food
  • Community Nutrition
  • Nutrition Education
  • …or other nutrition course selections

An “emphasis” is like an added credential or a sub-major within biomedical science.  An emphasis in nutrition is especially valuable to anyone considering a career in patient care, such as naturopathic medicine, nursing, chiropractic medicine and osteopathic medicine, or careers in science education, food science or public health.
