Bachelor of Science in Human Physiology & Nutrition
The Bachelor of Science in Human Physiology and Nutrition curriculum is built upon a core set of required classes that map directly to the most common prerequisite classes necessary for application to professional schools, such as medical and physician assistant programs, making it an attractive “pre-med” major. Upper division elective classes will allow students to take more specialized courses in the fields of physiology and nutrition as needed for their particular career path. The degree will offer even greater flexibility in both general and upper division elective courses than the former Biomedical Science and Nutrition options. This is seen as a direct benefit to students, who often struggle to take all the various classes required for professional schools within the rigid structure of many 4-year degree plans.
