These courses are suitable for senior-level students who wish to do research in nutrition. The courses are based on a learning contract between the student and an approved supervisor. The course typically includes choosing and defining a problem; obtaining information from libraries or the internet; field work or experiments; organizing facts and ideas; and reporting findings and conclusions in a written form. Projects can only be done on work planned; they cannot be done on work already completed. Contact the course professor before registering.
The course provides an in-depth understanding of topics valuable to a well-rounded understanding of nutrition and presents recent developments in the field. In addition, students will enhance their ability to write a critical evaluation of topics in nutrition.
