You must have the prerequisites for any course you take.  We will not override prerequisites in order to allow you to progress more quickly.

NOTES:

1. Students must take BIOL 1410 Anatomy of the Human Body or BIOL 1020 Biology 1 and BIOL 1030 Biology 2, AND require BIOL 1412 Physiology of the Human Body (3 credits) in order to take HNSC 3310 Macronutrients & Human Health and HNSC 3300 Vitamins and Minerals in Human Health. Free electives must be used to meet this requirement for BIOL 1412, if BIOL 1020 and BIOL 1030 are taken.

2. Electives are the student’s choice. However, to graduate, the student MUST include: 15 credits of department electives (choose from list of HNS courses below) and 24 credits of free electives (choose from any course on campus including courses in the Department of Food and Human Nutritional Sciences (choose from any course on campus, including courses from Human Nutritional Sciences (HNSC)).

3. STUDENTS WHO INTEND TO PURSUE A DIETETIC INTERSHIP MUST TAKE: HNSC 3342 (requires GMGT 1010 or 2030 to be taken in year 2; the business course uses 3 credit hours of free electives) and must also take HNSC 4140, and 3 credit hours that are selected from HNSC 4300, HNSC 4310, HNSC 4362, and HNSC 4340.

4. Students can take either CHEM 2770/MBIO 2770 (Elements of Biochemistry 1) or CHEM 2360/MBIO 2360 (Biochemistry 1: Bio-molecules and an Introduction to Metabolic Energy). Students can take either CHEM 2780/MBIO 2780 (Elements of Biochemistry 2) or CHEM 2370/MBIO 2370 (Biochemistry 2: Catabolism, Synthesis, and Information Pathways).

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. Students who do not plan on pursuing a dietetics internship have the option of completing HNSC 4320 Nutrition Management of Disease States or HNSC 4300 Community Nutrition Intervention.

7. Check and consult the Undergraduate Calendar for former course numbers and other equivalents for prerequisites.

*A Minor in Management is offered by the Asper School of Business for Human Nutritional Sciences students.
