Description

Students majoring in Nutrition examine the role of food and nutrition in overall health and disease prevention with an emphasis on the metabolic and physiological responses of the body to diet. Interested students can learn about career opportunities and pathways in Nutrition and related fields from the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.

The two-year program is designed to meet the requirements for an Associate of Science in Nutrition from CNM and prepare a student to obtain a Bachelor of Science in Nutrition and Dietetics at the University of New Mexico. However, students from CNM seeking a baccalaureate degree may also transfer to other institutions. Students interested in transfer to UNM should consult the Department of Individual, Family, and Community Education - Nutrition/Dietetics Program. Students should always refer to the catalog of their intended transfer institution for admission, program, course, and graduation requirements. College catalogs are generally available online. Students should also consult a faculty advisor and/or the CNM Academic Advising Center.
