Lectures provide core learning that are grounded in the biological and social sciences. Labs allow for the application of classroom instruction. New topics and emerging research are explored in small group seminars. Students may enroll in an area of emphasis in dietetics. This dietetic education program is accredited under the Partnership for Dietetic Education and Practice (PDEP) and prepares students for eligibility for registration with a provincial dietetics regulatory body.
Applied Human Nutrition (AHN) Major
Research has demonstrated the powerful effects of food on the lives of individuals and populations. Food choice can dramatically influence overall health and well-being and prevent the development of chronic conditions such as type 2 diabetes, heart disease and certain cancers.

You will have the unique opportunity to examine nutrition from multiple perspectives including preventative and therapeutic aspects.
Within the AHN major, you may choose to do an area of emphasis in dietetics (accredited program recognized by the Partnership for Dietetic Education and Practice, and making you eligible to compete for post-graduate dietetics training) OR an optional minor.
