The Nutrition Science Major is an applied science that draws from both science and social science concepts. Within the nutrition major, you will draw upon your knowledge of biology, chemistry, and biochemistry to study nutrients within foods and how the human body digests and metabolizes everything we eat and drink.

This video also covers how things like aging, illness, exercise, disease, and pregnancy affect our nutritional needs and metabolism.

In addition to your science courses, you will take several social science courses that focus on the psychological components that make up nutrition.

Within the Nutrition major the two most common concentrations are “Dietetics” and “Nutrition Science.”

Dietetics is the most common concentration because it is used by students with aspirations of becoming a Registered Dietitian. In addition, this video will give you several potential careers even if you don’t become an RD.

The other most common concentration that Nutrition majors enter into is the Nutrition Science concentration.

Although there are a few career paths Nutrition Science majors can enter into, most students pursue healthcare fields such as medical, dental, nurses, nurse practitioners, and physician assistance.

By the end of this video, you will have a superior understanding of what classes you will take, what the concentrations you can enter into, and what careers would be best for you.

I go over exactly what you can expect as a Nutrition major and include some of the basic courses you take, the concentrations you can focus on, and most importantly how you can use this major for your future career.

    I enjoy counseling my elderly friend in nutrition. What could be more important than nutrition?? An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure right?

  5. ZeroBroking on March 17, 2023 at 9:46 am

  6. Aimee Chen on March 17, 2023 at 9:48 am

    bruh- I debated between nursing and nutrition and I just submitted my college applications for nursing. But now I really wanna change my major to nutrition. *cries in regret*

  7. ella.alghazal on March 17, 2023 at 9:49 am

  9. wende patrella on March 17, 2023 at 9:56 am

    This is exciting!!!

  10. Katherine Gibson on March 17, 2023 at 9:56 am

    I didn’t see Sports Nutrition as an option – I’ve seen that to become a Sports Nutritionist one would need to become a dietitian first, but some people also go to Graduate school for Kinesiology. Where would S.N. fit in this category?

  11. Gen Doll on March 17, 2023 at 9:58 am

    I have a medical background and am looking into getting back to work after being a stay at home mom for so long and after losing over 100 lbs on keto with PCOS I want to get into nutrition more and help other people like me. I’d love to minor in like herbology or horticulture or something as well. It is true, food is medicine.

  12. darrylkid on March 17, 2023 at 9:59 am

    It seems like a fun major for people who body build, play sports, generally fit, or want to be fit

  13. Didi Ninaj on March 17, 2023 at 10:01 am

    This vid is educational. I’ve been trying to look for a awesome YouTube video like yours that really explains everything in this vid. 👏Your vid totally reminds me of the videos of this informative med student Doctor Ethan. Dr’s tips are educational and I really learned a lot for my wellness! He is an educational med student in Nottingham and he talks about vaccines!

    You should check out his channel out and give the Dr a subscribe here! ➡️ #DrEthanCare

  27. ash on March 17, 2023 at 10:18 am

    for anyone who might see this now and has some knowledge about this major, does it require a lot of calculus? I’m in my senior year of high school and this class is just not working for me (it was a recommended course, but not required, and I already have my math 4u credit) I’d be grateful for an answer pleaseeee

  28. Donald Jones on March 17, 2023 at 10:19 am

    Waiting to see the video regarding software engineering major. It’s confusing to differentiate between it and the other stuff like computer science, information technology and so on.

  30. MMNGGG on March 17, 2023 at 10:21 am

    Honestly I just wanna study what way to make me stay in this world as long as possible.
    It is better that I do self-taught myself about it.
    Any recommend for books I wanna study from an ignorant person to someone who can live more than 10 years
