Pre-Professional Nutrition

Pre-Professional Track (click to view PDF)
Pre-Professional Option Student Handbook (click to view PDF)

This course of study allows students to study other areas of science, foods, and nutrition. With guidance from their advisor, students can design a course of study to meet their course requirements to prepare them for different aspects of applied nutrition, food science, post- baccalaureate studies in other health professional programs (medicine, dental, pharmacy), or an advanced research degree in nutrition or other biomedical sciences. However, this course of study does not meet all the undergraduate academic course work requirements of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.

Students interested in the Food Science option may contact the CTAHR Academic Advising Office, at ctahradv@hawaii.edu, and are encouraged to refer to the Pre-Professional Option Student Handbook for more information about this option.
