Nutritional Science is one of the two majors offered by the Department of Nutrition. This major is usually for students who are interested in nutrition from a science or community angle, but do not necessarily want to become a registered dietitian. Nutrition Science majors on the nutritional biochemistry track typically take more classes in biology and biochemistry but less classes in management and medical nutrition therapy than clinical nutrition majors. Nutrition science majors on the community nutrition track typically take more social science classes and less biology than the clinical majors or the nutrition science majors with a biochem emphasis.
