Minor in Nutrition

The Minor in Nutrition is open to majors from other units and colleges, including those in the BS in Kinesiology program, but not those students enrolled in the BS in Nutrition program. Students will be allowed to complete the minor area of study within Nutrition if they meet the transfer-eligibility criteria at the time of application (minimum GPA of 2.50/4.00). Students must submit a request form to the department (AHSB, Room 650). Students must also consult their home colleges about the acceptability and applicability of Nutrition course credit toward their degree. Registration for most HN courses is restricted to students in the department; therefore, students must register through a departmental academic advisor. A minimum cumulative GPA of 2.50/4.00 is required for the minor field.

Students must take the following courses for a minimum of 18 semester hours.
