Lecturer Debbie Fetter talks with a student about her diet results during Nutrition 10 in California Hall.


The Department of Nutrition encompasses all aspects of the consumption and utilization of food and its constituents. Research in the department ranges from basic biology to intervention studies, focusing on better treatment and prevention of health problems.

Research helps formulate policies and nutrition recommendations and provides guidance to improve the health and nutritional status of people and populations. Outreach helps extend science-based information to the public through local, state, national and international channels.

The department offers two undergraduate majors, nutrition science and clinical nutrition, and four minor programs (community nutrition, nutrition science, food service management, and nutrition and food). Graduate education includes the Graduate Group in Nutritional Biology.
