The Nutrition Science Major is an applied science that draws from both science and social science concepts. Within the nutrition major, you will draw upon your knowledge of biology, chemistry, and biochemistry to study nutrients within foods and how the human body digests and metabolizes everything we eat and drink.
This video also covers how things like aging, illness, exercise, disease, and pregnancy affect our nutritional needs and metabolism.
In addition to your science courses, you will take several social science courses that focus on the psychological components that make up nutrition.
Within the Nutrition major the two most common concentrations are “Dietetics” and “Nutrition Science.”
Dietetics is the most common concentration because it is used by students with aspirations of becoming a Registered Dietitian. In addition, this video will give you several potential careers even if you don’t become an RD.
The other most common concentration that Nutrition majors enter into is the Nutrition Science concentration.
Although there are a few career paths Nutrition Science majors can enter into, most students pursue healthcare fields such as medical, dental, nurses, nurse practitioners, and physician assistance.
By the end of this video, you will have a superior understanding of what classes you will take, what the concentrations you can enter into, and what careers would be best for you.
I go over exactly what you can expect as a Nutrition major and include some of the basic courses you take, the concentrations you can focus on, and most importantly how you can use this major for your future career.
