More Information

Section Description

The goal of NFS 43 is to develop a basic understanding of the science of nutrition. Our aim is for you to develop an ability to discern between the truth and fiction about nutrition, to ask insightful questions and to find the answers. Our expectation is that you will gain the knowledge and skills needed to achieve a nutritionally healthy lifestyle.

Section Expectation

Students find it helpful to read the appropriate chapter in the text before listening to the audio lectures. It is also useful to print out the slides that we have provided in PDF handout format so you can take notes as you listen to the audio lectures. Be sure to note any information that was confusion or areas where you need more explanation. You can then post any questions you have to the weekly `General Questions? discussion board, ask by email or attend the exam review sessions.


There are a variety of types of assessments that are woven throughout this course. There is a weekly discussion, knowledge check quizzes, a dietary assessment project and three exams.
