Do you love food? Do you love it so much you want to learn the science behind it? And how food is digested and absorbed? Would you like to help people make good food choices and stay healthy? If so, then you may be interested in our two-year program.
You'll take courses in several different areas, including chemistry, biology, sociology and psychology. After you complete the program on our campus, you'll apply to the University of Pittsburgh's Nutrition and Dietetics Program in the School of Health
and Rehabilitation Sciences (SHRS).
Once you earn your degree, you can pretty much work anywhere: In a hospital or health care center you'll make sure patients receive proper nutrition. In an industry or business where you'll research new products. For the government where you can develop
food and nutrition policies.
What you can do with a degree in Pre-Nutrition.

Please be advised that some programs or courses of study require that students complete rotations, fieldwork, internships/externships and/or teaching assignments at facilities external to the university, while other programs or courses of study may offer
voluntary internships or externships at facilities external to the university. Depending on the program or course, such facilities will or may require a criminal background check, an act 33/34 clearance (if applicable), and perhaps a drug screen to
determine participant qualification or eligibility. Additionally, in order to become licensed, many states will inquire as to whether the applicant has been convicted of a misdemeanor, a felony, or a felonious or illegal act associated with alcohol
and/or substance abuse.
It's easy to apply online or print and mail your form.
