Growing public demand for health information has created a need for communicators and marketers with a thorough understanding of health and nutrition issues. A Bachelor of Science degree in nutrition provides students with the ability to apply nutrition principles in a variety of settings.
Within the BS in nutrition program, students interested in starting a business or innovating within a business can opt for the food entrepreneurship track. In the track, students grow their understanding of the food industry, learn to manage and market food, and develop recipes or menus that meets specific nutritional guidelines, preparing them to apply their nutrition knowledge to an entrepreneurial food-related business or organization.
Please note that the online BS in nutrition does not provide a pathway to become a registered dietitian (RD) or dietitian nutritionist (RDN). Anyone interested in becoming a registered dietitian should pursue ASU’s on-campus BS in dietetics degree. Learn more about how to become a registered dietitian.
