The Nutrition and Food Science (NFS) major at Hunter College is a diverse science-based program where students learn about food and its effect on our health. It offers a comprehensive study of the fundamental principles of food preparation and safety, nutrition, food service management, and community nutrition education. This is accomplished through the application of a variety of sciences. Students who like physical and biological sciences, are interested in good health, enjoy working with people, and are concerned about the nutritional well-being of people and communities will find interesting and challenging career opportunities within health care fields or in the food industry. The NFS major at Hunter College develops these interests and prepares students for challenging opportunities after graduation.
Degrees at both the Masters and Bachelors level are offered. The Masters degree results in the completion of required DPD coursework, while a BS/MS track accelerates the transition from undergraduate to graduate studies.
