Foods and Nutrition at Messiah College
The foods and nutrition minor is designed to enable students with majors related to health, family and consumer science, or management and business to expand their nutrition knowledge and skill. Foods and nutrition courses are a great way to enhance other majors in the sciences and business; however, it does not meet all the requirements needed to apply for the Commission on Accreditation of Dietetics Education internship. You are encouraged to speak with your minor advisor about the additional coursework needed if you would like to pursue a career as a registered dietician.
The foods and nutrition minor enhances careers in:
- Family and consumer science
- Food industry
- Health care
