Culinary nutrition is an exciting interdisciplinary research-based field with biochemical underpinnings that form a framework on which creative culinary professionals hang their artfully designed recipes while incorporating culinary science. The Bachelor of Science degree at Life University prepares students to respect food and the food system as an integral part of health and healing.
WHAT OUR STUDENTS SAY
Getting a mentor early on, especially if you’re in the Dietetics program, is huge, just because there are so many different little steps. You definitely need to know your specialty going in, before the internship. You really have to know like a year before because each internship is going to have a specialty.
