The Nutrition minor is an excellent addition for Food Science & Technology or Kinesiology students wanting a good foundation in some basic Nutritional principals. It is rigorous, requiring a year of general Chemistry and two terms of organic chemistry as pre-requisites to BB 350 in addition to the courses listed below. This minor does not prepare students to become Dieticians (RD's).
