Associate Professor Fink
Assistant Professors Busch, Nix
This major focuses on the multifaceted relationship between food, nutrients, and human health. Students will explore content such as nutritional demands and requirements, food culture, policy and systems, and human physiology and metabolism. A key aspect of the program is the opportunity to put theory into practice through applied work in tailored internships, including the OWU Cooking Matters program. This major prepares students to pursue careers in nutrition, dietetics*, community health, health education, food justice and advocacy, food industry work, and related graduate programs. A major in nutrition is a useful addition for those planning advanced studies in medicine and allied health fields such as dentistry, physician assistant, nursing, and others.
Nutrition Majors are required to follow the standard OWU distribution requirements. See the catalog section on Distribution Requirements for specific information
