At Springfield College, being healthy in spirit, mind, and body is a way of life—and we need people who are passionate about understanding the complex relationships between food and health.
That’s where you come in. As a student minoring in nutritional sciences, you’ll become an independent thinker and problem solver who is ready to address nutrition-related challenges in food choices, food supply, and food security. Our program, which is a non-dietetics track major, is grounded in the sciences and will help you not just understand nutrition, but be able to communicate what you’ve learned to others.
The minor will prepare you for your choice of graduate programs in nutritional sciences and dietetics, or employment opportunities in both the public and private sectors, including in the areas of community nutrition, corporate or public health, wellness, food service management, nutrition education, research, and sales.
