The Culinary Arts, Hospitality/Dietetics and Nutrition Department is offering a new bachelor's degree in nutrition. Tim Doebler, the director for Culinary Arts & Hospitality, said the university has been working 15 years to add this degree. The new nutrition bachelor's degree will take a wholistic view of food, he said, including its place in the culture, status of food supply and security and food's role in health and disease states. It differs from Dietetics, another degree to be offered in 2011; dietetics is the clinical approach food's role in health. The degree will be offered statewide online and represents a collaboration among many parties, including the Allied Health Council, the School of Nursing, and others.
The department will host group advising sessions at the times and locations listed above. Information for the ELive sessions will be posted on the Culinary Arts Web site at the beginning of January.
