The program equips the student with competencies in planning, management, and supervision of diets of healthy and diseased individuals, designing effective nutrition programs in health promotion and disease prevention, and food production and administration of foodservice operations geared at building entrepreneurial capabilities.  All of these are grounded on continuous integration and application of the principles of food and nutrition, human behavior and biomedical sciences.
