Program Philosophy: 
Nutrition Consultant: This program equips students with the skills to become nutrition professionals and to expertly educate on health and wellness. The program teaches an in-depth study of the foundations of nutrition - anatomy, physiology, macro and micronutrient requirements, healthful food selection, and more. Students learn therapeutic applications of various foods and supplements to help their clients avoid illness and maximize health. A required internship allows students to explore a variety of career options including work in hospitals, with a variety of healthcare providers, teaching, research, nutrition consultation, and more so that they are able to start down their career path even before graduation. The Nutrition Consultant Training Program is also available via Distance Learning for those who prefer to work from home. Natural Chef: This program teaches students to succeed in the culinary field by combining classic culinary training with therapeutic techniques for the prevention of illness and the promotion of optimal health. Students become experts in food preparation, flavor selection, and food presentation. They learn to prepare meals with therapeutic ingredients and techniques to nourish their clients and best support their health. Through an independent externship students explore career opportunities such as personal, private, and corporate chef, restaurant and catering work, and beyond.
