概述

Food and nutrition are the foundations of good health. In the 十大网赌正规网址 营养科学 major, students are prepared to develop lifelong personal health practices and to advise others on what to eat in order to lead a healthy lifestyle or achieve a specific health-related goal.

许多复杂的疾病, 比如癌症, 糖尿病, and heart disease could be better managed with the help of a nutritionist as part of a health care team. 事实上,美国.S. Centers for Disease Control indicate that nutritionists and dietitians will be in higher demand because of the increasing prevalence of complex diseases in an aging population. 曼彻斯特 nutrition majors develop a comprehensive understanding of the relationship between nutrition and medicine as they relate to human health.

Two Major Tracks and a Minor

主修 营养科学 and you’ll study food science, 有机化学, 晚餐准备, 饮食计划, micronutrients and metabolism. Your preparation will make you well-suited for careers 如:

  • 企业健康
  • Health/fitness management (might require fitness certification)
  • Health/medical/nutrition equipment sales
  • Food and nutrition communication
  • Humanitarian nutrition support (food banks, global food support: Red Cross, 联合国儿童基金会, 世界粮食计划署)
  • Health department nutrition educator
  • Eligible for Wellcoaches® and wellness coach certification
  • Food industry (food communicator/writer/marketer)

营养科学 major with Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN) concentration is designed to prepare students for further study, including fulfilling requirements for acceptance into RDN eligible master’s degree programs.* Students who ultimately plan to take the Commission on Dietetic Registration (CDR) national credentialing examination for certification as a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN) should follow this track. Read more about master's requirements for RDN credentialing on the CDR的网站.

*研究生 degree programs vary between universities and may require additional courses. A bachelor’s degree in 营养科学 from 曼彻斯特 fulfills all the academic requirements for application to 曼彻斯特’s 理学硕士 in Nutrition and 营养基因组学 Program; however, admission is not guaranteed.

With RDN certification, you’ll be prepared to work as a:

  • 临床营养师
  • Nutrition manager (school food system management, 医院食品管理, 公共卫生营养师, 公司网站)
  • Food policy professional at the USDA

  • 食品化学
  • 营养生物化学家
  • 营养基因组学
  • 营养食品销售
  • 科学联络主任
  • Academia and health education

A major or minor in 营养科学 also prepares students pursuing other health careers to focus on preventative health measures and whole patient care (meets many requirements for pre-med, pre-PT, 护理).
