Students completing the BMN program will graduate with the necessary analytical, technical, and communication skills required for research and teaching positions in academia, industry, and government.

Nutrition is a natural science that has a fundamental biological basis. Understanding nutrition-related biochemical and cellular processes and pathways will have far reaching implications for human nutrition. To study such processes and pathways requires a critical knowledge of biochemistry and physiology combined with a fundamental background in basic sciences.
