Major in Nutrition and Food Science

Major in Nutrition and Food Science

Students interested in a major in food science and nutrition should complete the nutrition requirements listed below. The all-College policy requires a student to repeat a course if a grade of F is earned, since no credit is received for a failed course. Students will be encouraged to repeat a course in which a grade of D-, D, or D+ is earned. Suggested sequencing will be determined by the student with consultation from her adviser. It should be noted that this major does not meet the DPD requirements.
