Minor in Nutrition

The purpose of the Minor in Nutrition option is to allow students who are majoring with other degrees but interested in knowing about nutrition to improve their knowledge on making good food choices.

Mission: The minor in Nutrition supports the mission of The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley and the College of Health Professions by promoting student access, success, health education and community engagement. It does so by training students in the field of Nutrition, Nutrition and Wellness and Food Management and Technology. Students will graduate with critical thinking skills about nutrition awareness and meet the nutrition/food services needs of a culturally diverse community with disproportionate health disparities.
