Bachelor of Science in Precision Nutrition and Wellness

Through the School of Nutritional Sciences and Wellness

We are on the brink of a revolution, an amazing transformation in how we approach nutrition, health, and wellness. By utilizing precision genomic and molecular tools originally designed in medicine, we are now moving from the frantic race of curing diseases after they are diagnosed to using individualized nutrition and wellness approaches to prevent diseases before they strike. The new BS degree in Precision Nutrition and Wellness was designed to prepare students to participate in and lead this revolution.  This transdisciplinary program will give students the knowledge and skills to discern why certain foods and individual nutrients may be metabolized differently by different individuals and racial/ethnic groups. The program also explores how an individual’s genetics and environment (exercise and lifestyle) interact to influence health and wellness. Earn your Bachelor of Science in Precision Nutrition and Wellness at the University of Arizona and prepare for a career leading the precision nutrition and wellness revolution.  LEARN MORE!
