Nutrition and Dietetics

The Associate Degree for Transfer in Nutrition and Dietetics prepares students for success in a baccalaureate degree in Nutrition and Dietetics with the lower division course work required to transfer into the CSU system. Students completing the Associate Degree for Transfer in Nutrition and Dietetics will be prepared to transfer to a CSU as juniors and pursue a baccalaureate degree in Nutrition and Dietetics. Students transferring to a non-CSU campus should consult the catalog and determine the specific requirements of the campus to which they are applying. The study of Nutrition provides a broad foundation in a practical and personally applicable exposure to a variety of scientific areas of nutrition, such as Chemistry, Microbiology, Anatomy, Physiology and Biology. Students in the program learn how the scientific method and process contributes to nutritional requirements and how nutrients function from a cellular to a more practical level and then apply this knowledge to their own health. This program

will help the student understand the relationship of nutrition and disease prevention throughout the lifecycle.
