Lifestyle Nutrition

The Lifestyle Nutrition concentration combines nutrition with business, management, and exercise science. Students interested in health, nutrition, and fitness learn best practices for promoting healthy lifestyles and disease prevention to diverse individuals and groups for positions in fitness and community centers, community agencies such as Women, Infant and Children (WIC) and food banks, school foodservice, and health-related business, particularly corporate wellness programs. As a compliment to this concentration, students may pursue certification as a health coach or personal trainer.

Sample courses include food preparation; nutrition, disease prevention, and health promotion; entrepreneurship; nutrition for health, fitness, and sports; obesity; exercise science, accounting, management, and marketing. This concentration also meets the requirements for graduate admissions into an accelerated nursing program to obtain a Registered Nurse credential.
