1. Students must complete 60 credit hours while enrolled in the second degree program. If any of the required courses have been completed in the previous degree, free electives must be chosen to meet the 60 credit hour requirement. Students are not required to satisfy the Written English requirement. This program may take longer than 2 academic years to complete.
2. Pre-requisite courses in bold are not required, but are recommended. If these courses are not completed prior to registration, the student must contact the Advising Office by e-mail stating the course, CRN and student information in order to get overrides in order to register for courses successfully. We cannot provide overrides or exceptions for Science prerequisites. Consult the Undergraduate Calendar for former course numbers and other equivalents for prerequisites.
3. Under required courses; students can take either CHEM 1320 or CHEM 1310. Students can take CHEM 2210 and CHEM 2220 instead of CHEM 1300 and CHEM 1310 or CHEM 1320. For students who do not take CHEM 2210 and CHEM 2220 , CHEM 1320 is preferred.
4. Students can take either CHEM 2770/MBIO 2770 or CHEM 2360/MBIO 2360. Students can take either CHEM 2780/MBIO 2780 or CHEM 2370/MBIO 2370.
5. Students can take either BIOL 1412 (Physiology of the Human Body) or BIOL 2410 (Human Physiology 1) and BIOL 2420 (Human Physiology 2).
6. If BIOL 1020 Biology 1 and BIOL 1030 Biology 2 are taken, the additional 3 credit hours are considered to be free electives. Students must still complete BIOL 1412 (Physiology of the Human Body).
7. Electives are the student’s choice. However, some of the courses chosen for degree completion may require additional prerequisites that will then count as free electives.
8. STUDENTS WHO INTEND TO PURSUE A DIETETIC INTERNSHIP MUST TAKE:  3 credit hours that may be selected from HNSC 4300, HNSC 4310, HNSC 4362, HNSC 4340.  Also for those intending to apply for a Dietetic internship, the second degree program meets the course requirements in Human Nutritional Sciences, but not all the other supporting course requirements (for example, psychology/sociology, humanities or social sciences, microbiology, research methods, communication arts, basic principles of management).  Students declaring option A: Dietetic Preparation will receive further information from the Academic Advisor by e-mail.
