Employers Value Nutrition Science Majors
The Lewis College of Nursing and Health Professions offers a bachelor of science degree in Nutrition with concentrations in Nutrition Science and Nutrition and Wellness. The Nutrition Science concentration provides a strong foundation for those interested in positions in applied sciences or for those pursuing pre-professional (medical, dental, occupational therapy, speech pathology and dietetics) studies. Students interested in eventually pursuing Georgia State’s Coordinated Program, which prepares students to become registered dietitian nutritionists, should choose the Nutrition Science concentration. The Nutrition and Wellness concentration prepares students for entry-level careers in the nutrition, health and wellness fields. This program provides students with a well-rounded understanding of the health and nutrition needs of the public over the lifespan and equips students with health communication skills. These skills and this knowledge will help prepare students for positions in nutrition and wellness promotion in government agencies and private industries.
