NS 2450 Social Science Perspectives on Food and Nutrition
NS 2450 uses the Food Choice Process Model as the organizing framework to explore how social science theories and methods can be used to understand nutrition issues and inform health promotion practices. Students read primary research papers and conduct small research projects to become familiar with qualitative and quantitative research methods. The course helps students see beyond their own experiences related to nutrition issues and be better prepared to work with clients and communities as they advance in their training and careers.
