Program Description

The Associate in Science in Nutrition and Dietetics for Transfer degree (AS-T in Nutrition and Dietetics) prepares students for success in a baccalaureate degree in Nutrition and Dietetics with the lower-division coursework required to transfer into the CSU system.  Students learn about chemicals and nutrients in food and their effects on the human body and the world. The study of nutritional science contributes to preparing students for careers as nutritionists, registered dietitians (RD), food scientists, or other food and nutrition professionals.

The study of nutrition provides a broad foundation of the scientific and practical areas of food and nutrition including chemistry, biology, microbiology, anatomy, physiology, and psycho-social-cultural influences on eating behavior. Popular topics include sports nutrition, energy and macronutrient balance, obesity and weight concerns, eating disorders, nutrigenomics, food safety, food security, and environmental nutrition.  Students in the program learn how to critically examine popular food and nutrition claims, how nutrient needs change throughout the lifecycle and with various levels of physical activity, and how nutrients function from a cellular to more practical level to support optimal health and human performance.
