The Nutrition certificate program is designed for undergraduate students who wish to acquire further education and hands-on experience in the field of nutrition.

Through this program, undergraduate students will be provided with the opportunity to explore nutrition as it relates to healthy populations, obesity, disordered eating, and athletes of all abilities. Students will therefore acquire knowledge of the importance of integrating nutritional principles into their disciplines across a variety of professions. This certificate can accompany any major on campus.
