Minor in Nutrition

 Nutrition student in lab



The goal of the nutrition minor is to provide students in a variety of majors at the University of Cincinnati with a strong foundation of the basic principles of food and nutrition. To fulfill this goal, the minor will prepare students to be able to:

  • explain basic principles of human nutrition;
  • make sound decisions about food to enhance overall health;
  • recognize the importance of exercise and fitness as it relates to health and wellness; and
  • demonstrate familiarity with nutritional issues of various life stages.

The nutrition minor program is designed for students interested in health care or those enrolled in a variety of different undergraduate majors that have fulfilled the prerequisites needed to complete the minor curriculum. Students may find the nutrition minor beneficial for broadening future employment opportunities and for improving their personal nutrition, health, and lifestyle outcomes.

The nutrition minor provides students with a strong foundation of the basic principles of nutrition and offers the flexibility to select electives based on their areas of interest.

It is important to note that those obtaining the nutrition minor will not be qualified to provide medical nutrition therapy.
