Food, Nutrition, and Health Major

The Food, Nutrition, and Health (FNH) Major offers to students the flexibility to tailor the program to reflect specific interests in food, nutrition, and health without the specialization depth afforded by the other majors. With suitable course selections, students may be prepared to enter the Home Economics Teacher Education Program at UBC once they have completed this major, a program that prepares graduates for employment opportunities in secondary schools as Home Economics teachers.
