Nutrition and Food Studies

Bachelor of Science (B.S.) Degree (curriculum code: HONF)
The study of nutrition and foods provides solid academic education and practical training for a great variety of career opportunities. Through positions in health care, business, government service, private practice, the food and food service industries, and educational and community programs, dietitians, nutritionists, and professionals in the food industry help individuals and the public to make healthier food choices.

The undergraduate program in Nutrition and Food Studies leads to a Bachelor of Science degree in one of three areas of concentration:

The three areas share core courses. and we encourage students to enroll in any one of them and take courses in the others. Half of all total credits are taken in NYU's College of Arts and Sciences, and our program gives all students a strong liberal education along with specialization in food or nutrition.

Public Health

Our new Undergraduate Program in Public Health, one of only a few in the country, leads to a bachelor of science degree in public health. The aim of the program is to provide students with broad knowledge of some of the important issues in public health.

Students in Steinhardt and other NYU Divisions may enroll in one of our Minors.
