Upper Division

ENGL 005 , BIOL 001 /BIOL 001L , CHEM 008 /CHEM 009 , CHEM 010 /CHEM 011 .

Study the health effects of nutrition on the human biological system. This is a writing intensive course providing an overview of current topics in nutrition within the context of public health. In addition to studying the biochemical properties of macronutrients and micronutrients, we will explore concepts in dietary assessment and epidemiology, dietary toxic exposure and prevention strategies, life cycle nutrition, environmental justice, agriculture and food policy, and evaluation of related research. It builds on the rhetorical and critical thinking skills used to analyze texts developed in ENGL 005  and upon the fundamental biological and chemical concepts presented in introductory biology and chemistry. The research paper will prepare students with the skills to research and present on a range of topics in the health science discipline. Students may take this course in or any time after the spring semester of sophomore year and after completing introductory chemistry and biology.
