Nutrition: Community Health Promotion

With the Bachelor’s degree in Nutrition: Community Health Promotion, careers may be found in public health settings, school food service programs, food service management operations, food development and marketing, or nutritional product/pharmaceutical sales. This concentration prepares students to specialize in community nutrition and health promotion. Service learning experiences offer opportunities to gain practical experience and establish a network in the field.  This is different than the Coordinated Program in Dietetics (CPD).
