The Nutrition and Wellness track provides a broad curriculum that includes both liberal arts and nutrition, science, and health courses. This educational framework provides the knowledge, skills, and values needed for entry into graduate school or a career in nutrition and wellness.

The Nutrition and Wellness track is not accredited by the Commission on Accreditation for Dietetics Education of The American Dietetic Association, and it does not lead to an accredited internship. Students in this track are not eligible to sit for the registration examination.

Students typically select the Nutrition and Wellness track at the end of their sophomore year.
