The Applied Nutrition (APN) major provides a foundation in the sciences and social sciences. Students who are interested in the Dietetics (DIET) major will be enrolled in the Applied Nutrition major until meeting the requirements of admission to the Dietetics major. The suggested programs of study for the two majors Applied Nutrition (APN) and Dietetics (DIET) are similar during the first two years. After completion of at least 40 credits and meeting the mandatory course and GPA requirements for entry to the DIET major, students may apply for a change to the DIET major. Those who do not meet the requirements or do not wish to become a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist will remain in the Applied Nutrition (APN) major. The APN major is designed for students with broad and varied interests and allows students to combine their study of nutrition with other interests, such as health and exercise, food science, psychology, or business. Career paths: Graduates from the Applied Nutrition major are eligible for employment in nutrition education programs, food services, and fitness or health promotion programs. Those completing the Dietetics major who become Registered Dietitian Nutritionists work with individuals and groups in a variety of settings. Graduates are employed in health care organizations, food service operations, business and industry, education and research, health promotion and private practice. Typically, Nutritional Sciences majors choose to pursue advanced degrees in the health and nutrition fields.
