Sports nutrition is a rapidly growing field of study. Careers in sports nutrition lead to work with individuals and groups who are healthy, active and highly competitive or are seeking to develop or rebuild an active, healthy lifestyle.
The sports nutrition concentration is designed for students who seek graduate studies in related fields or who wish to prepare for careers in corporate wellness centers, fitness centers, and university and commercial athletic teams.
Individuals who hope to become Registered Dietitians must complete the dietetics concentration or take additional courses that will qualify them to apply for a post-baccalaureate internship.
The Mansfield University Nutrition program endeavors to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act and with University Policies regarding students with disabilities. Every effort will be made to provide reasonable accommodation for qualified students with disabilities who are able to perform the essential functions of our academic program in Nutrition.
Students who are accepted into the program, and then discovered to be unable to perform these essential functions (with or without accommodation) may not be able to complete the program.
Graduates who complete the program but are unable to perform certain competencies may experience significant roadblocks to, and in, the employment setting.
