California Polytechnic University, San Luis Obispo
Nutrition B.S. with a Concentration in Nutrition and Food Industries

Nutrition is the study of how food impacts health and well-being. Nutritionists focus on food from the chemistry to the cooking; from eating for wellness to prescribing diets for health and disease. With a Nutrition degree, you''ll make a difference in people''s lives. Many professions involve nutrition. Some of the career options require additional study after your Bachelor''s degree. Some require the Registered Dietitian credential; others require other post-graduate work such as nursing or medical school. Some nutritionists pursue a graduate degree for a more specialized field of interest or to work in academics. Depending on your personal interests, we''ll help you choose the right concentration within the Nutrition major to prepare you for your career goals. Students in the Nutrition and Food Industries Concentration will be prepared for employment in food product research and development, quality and regulatory operations, food and health communications, public relations, and technical sales in some of the largest and best-known multinational companies. Because this concentration includes extensive food science coursework, graduates are well-positioned to compete for many jobs within the food science field.
