Applied Human Nutrition

Certificate

This certificate is intended for professionals who are not dietitians nor nutritionists, but are concerned with health and wellness promotion such as nurses, kinesiologists, professional coaches and personal trainers, teachers, trained food service supervisors, dietary technicians, pharmacists and clinical psychologists. The certificate provides an enhanced understanding of the relationships among food, body composition, health, and human performance.

Please note that this certificate does not qualify the individual as a registered dietitian.

Admission is governed by the University’s admissions regulations. After University admission, submission of a completed program approval form to the advisor is required for formal acceptance in the program.

The certificate is normally completed within five years of admission to the certificate program.

Units applied to one certificate may not be applied to another certificate or diploma.

Program Requirements

Students must have a minimum 2.00 grade point average (GPA) calculated on all required courses.

Students complete one of
