BS Community Nutrition
The BS Community Nutrition was instituted in 1971 to replace the Bachelor of Science in Home Economics major in Nutrition and Dietetics which was a refinement of the BSHE major in Foods and Nutrition introduced as early as 1939 (Guzman MP, Home Economics Programs a Historical Perspective, p. 18, 1982). It prepares students to understand and help solve nutritional problems in families and communities. It provides adequate training in both hospital dietetics and public health nutrition. The curriculum aims to develop value-laden productive leaders with the necessary skills to meet the demands of the profession, and engage in research and develop activities relevant to national goals. Graduates of the BSCN program qualify to take the professional licensure exam in Nutrition and Dietetics.
