Degree Requirements and Program Options

Candidates for the B.Sc. (FNH) degree must complete the requirements as required for each major.

Master of Management Dual Degree Program Option

Interested students may apply for the Bachelor of Science (Food, Nutrition and Health) – Master of Management Dual Degree Program Option. For details regarding this Dual Degree Program Option and application see the Faculty of Commerce and Business Administration section of the Academic Calendar. Note that due to the fixed scheduling requirements of the Dietetics Major, it is typically not possible for students in this major to do the Master of Management through the dual degree program option route.

Minor Options

Food, Nutrition and Health students are eligible to apply for a Minor in Arts, a Minor in Commerce, a Minor in Science, or a Minor in Kinesiology (see below).

Minor in Kinesiology

Students enrolled in the Bachelor of Science (Food, Nutrition, and Health) degree may undertake an optional minor program in Kinesiology. Due to the fixed scheduling requirements of the Dietetics Major, it is typically not possible for students in this major to do a Kinesiology Minor.

Enrolment in the Kinesiology Minor program is limited to students eligible for third-year standing. Due to space limitations in the Kinesiology program, admission to the minor is competitive and will be based on a cumulative grade-point average of 54 credits of required first- and second-year courses for the Bachelor of Science (Food, Nutrition, and Health) degree. The minimum cumulative average is 68%; however, meeting the stated minimum average does not guarantee admission into this minor.

Application forms may be obtained from the Land and Food Systems website. Completed applications must be returned no later than March 31st.

The Kinesiology Minor program will consist of 18 credits selected from the following: KIN 231, 303, 351, 353, 361, 373, 375, 461, 464, 469, 471.

Notes:

  1. Students who wish to pursue a Minor in Kinesiology should be aware of the 300-level prerequisites for 400-level Kinesiology courses. However, 100- and 200-level prerequisites for KIN courses may be waived for students taking the minor. Space in many Kinesiology courses is limited. Admission to a Kinesiology Minor does not guarantee access to courses agreed upon for the minor. Upon successful completion of this minor program, the notation "Minor in Kinesiology" will be placed on the student's transcript.

  2. Students who wish to pursue studies in the Faculty of Education should be aware that courses that are acceptable for a Kinesiology Minor might not necessarily meet the requirements for a teaching concentration in the Faculty of Education. Students planning to enter the Teacher Education Program in the Faculty of Education need to review the detailed admission requirements. Students planning to apply for the secondary option must prepare a second teaching field.
  3. Students enrolled in a major and Kinesiology Minor are allowed to double-count a limited number of credits. The minor may contain 6 upper-level credits that are also counted toward the elective requirements of the major.
