Human Nutrition

The Human Nutrition minor provides an introduction and overview of human nutrition including the basic fundamentals and nutrition across the human life span. Students have the option to customize their tracks in the minor program by choosing from a selection of classes specific to their interests in the field, such as public health, food safety or nutrition science.

Why Choose This Program?

The minor allows students to experience the different areas of the nutrition program at The Ohio State University by offering classes within the Nutrition Sciences track, Nutrition in Industry track and Dietetics track. With a broader scope of classes to choose from, students have the opportunity to learn from several topics of interest as opposed to being on a single path of study.

How Can I Learn More?

Although a minor is not required for all students, some students choose to add a minor to complement their degree program. Students can declare some minors by meeting with the College of Education and Human Ecology Academic Program Coordinator, while others require permission from the department offering the minor. Students must declare their minor at least by the time the graduation application is submitted. Early declaration is highly encouraged. Once the minor program is filed in the college office, any changes must be approved. Contact the Office of Undergraduate Student Services for details.

The College of Arts and Sciences maintains a list of minors available at The Ohio State University. Please review the information listed there for the minor you are interested in and follow the stated procedures to declare this minor.
