Make a healthy career choice.

As society places greater emphasis on preventative healthcare, the need for professionals to help people make smarter food and fitness choices is rapidly increasing.

Combine education with your passion for a healthy lifestyle and major in nutrition at ACU, where Christian values and ethics serves as a foundation.

Choose from one of four concentrations to prepare for your desired career within the nutrition field:

  • If you’re interested in becoming a Registered Dietitian/Nutritionist, the dietetics concentration might be right for you.
  • The exercise science concentration prepares you to counsel individuals in wellness centers or serves as a foundation for a future personal training program.
  • The community concentration can lead to public education in a variety of settings.

The food service track provides training in food management, safety and marketing.
