About the Program

Eating right and exercising is not just a habit, it’s your life philosophy. If you’d like to pass on your personal experiences with healthy living and help others make positive lifestyle changes, consider the nutrition, fitness, and health program.

Traditionally, professionals have been trained in only one discipline, but key components of fitness are both physical activity and nutrition. The nutrition, fitness, and health option is one of the few programs in the country that combines coursework in exercise physiology and health promotion with a science-based nutrition curriculum. Upon successful completion of the program, you will earn a Bachelor of Science degree. For more information, please visit http://www.cfs.purdue.edu/fn/undergraduate/majors/nfh.html.
