 Nutrition Science

  • Note: The B.S. in Nutrition Science has been phased out but we are still offering the following courses as electives in an online format:

NTSI 101:  Food Science Lecture (3 credits) The structure and physical properties of foods are examined with respect to nutrient content and distribution in the food supply. The effects of agricultural methods, market handling, processing and home preparation on nutrient quality are considered. The interactions of food components in food preparation and processing methods are discussed and factors that influence food taste, texture and appearance and nutritive value, are explored. Offered during Spring semester

 

NTSI 201: Introduction to Clinical Nutrition Practice (3 credits) This course is intended to introduce students to nutrition practice. Students develop knowledge and skill in clinical and dietary assessment methodologies and develop facility with medical terminology and practices. Beginning with current nutritional therapies, students construct dietary intervention protocols using whole foods to meet the dietary prescription and discuss implementation of these protocols in diverse cultural groups and within confines of institutional food service systems. Attention will be placed on development of dietary practices to prevent and/or ameliorate disease. Offered Fall, Spring and Summer
