Kinesiology: B.S. Nutritional Sciences
According to the national occupational outlook handbook, employment opportunities are expected to increase about as fast as the average for all occupations. Job growth will result from an increasing emphasis on disease prevention through improved dietary habits. A growing and aging population will boost demand for nutrition-related programming and expertise in hospitals, residential care facilities, schools, prisons, community health programs, and home healthcare agencies. Public interest in food and nutrition, and increased emphasis on health education, also will spur demand for professionals in this field. Please know that a degree in the Nutritional Sciences does not qualify students for the credential of a “Registered Dietitian”.
