The Nutrition and Health Sciences major is an excellent choice for satisfying pre-health requirements for admission to professional health schools. It’s important to recognize that “pre-health” is not a major, but rather an educational track that includes courses needed for health schools while earning a bachelor’s degree. While you can choose any major offered at UNL, the Nutrition and Health Sciences major provides a solid foundation in science and lifestyle factors that affect health throughout the life span.
Within the Nutrition and Health Sciences major, pre-health students often choose one of the following options:
- Nutrition Science
