Nutrition Minor

The nutrition minor is particularly suited to students interested in pursuing professional careers related to human health and wellness.  The minor consists of a minimum of 20 credits, no more than 8 of which can also be used to fulfill major requirements.  A C average (2.00) is required in courses that the minor department approves; a grade of C-minus or better is required in all courses to be counted toward the minor.  Courses taken on a Pass/Fail basis may not be used for a minor.

Students declare the nutrition minor by submitting the Intent to Minor in Nutrition form to the Nutrition minor advisor, preferably prior to the start of their junior year. Submission of the Intent to Minor form is required to gain registration preference in certain courses if space is available and by discretion of the instructor. To complete the minor, students submit a Certification of Completion of Minor form during their final semester at UNH.
