Acadia University, School of Nutrition and Dietetics

Acadia University’s School of Nutrition and Dietetics is home to a vibrant research community and skilled faculty who will help you develop the knowledge and skills you’ll need for a career in this increasingly important field.

You will acquire an understanding about food and develop an appreciation for current issues in nutrition and dietetics. You will gain solid knowledge in biology and chemistry that is applied to studies of food and nutrient metabolism. Combined with courses in areas such as statistics, communications, psychology, and nutrition education, this background prepares you to work effectively with individuals, families, and communities to plan, develop and manage relevant nutrition programs. Outside of the classroom, you can participate in our School’s student society (NADS), the Canadian Association of Food Service Professionals (CAFP), Slow Food, Acadia student government (ASU), and the Acadia Farm, among many other activities.
