Department of Food and Nutrition


Susan S. Dahlheimer, Chairperson; Barker. Johnson, Taylor-Davis,
Wagoner; and professors emeritae Cessna, Minnick, Steiner

The Department of Food and Nutrition offers a degree program in nutri-
tion with two tracks, dietetics and general nutrition. Within the degree
program, students select a natural science option determined by their
academic preparation and career goals. This curriculum prepares students as
professionals for a diversity of career opportunities in fond service, the
food industry, food and nutrition research, and health care.

In addition, the department provides Liberal Studies courses which are
available to all university students. These include FDNT 143, an option in
the university's Liberal Studies requirements for Health and Wellness:
FDNT 145, a Liberal Studies elective: and three LBST 494 synthesis
courses (Food and Culture. The Battle for Perfection, and Screen Cuisine l

Dietetics Track

Students who complete the Dietetics Track (Didactic Program in Dietetics)
meet the academic requirements as accredited by the Commission on Ac-
creditation for Dietetics Education of the American Dietetic Association.
This track will prepare an individual to serve as a translator of food and
nutrition science information for members of the larger community with
respect to healthful food preparation, healthy eating behaviors, medical
nutrition therapy, management of nutrition delivery and food ser\ ice
systems, and advocacy for the profession of dietetics. The indh idual who
completes this program will exhibit an in-depth knowledge of food, nutri-
tion, behavioral sciences, and management theory and be able to apply this
knowledge to solve problems.

Nutrition Track

The Nutrition Track allows students to plan a curriculum based upon career
goals other than becoming a registered dietitian. Career opportunities for
these students include public health, food service administration, culinary
arts, journalism, communications, business, and gerontology.

Students who wish to pursue a career in food and nutrition research should
select the Natural Science Option II plus the nutrition track to acquire a
foundation for theoretical and applied food science and nutrition This
option meets the needs of students who wish to enter careers in food
nutrition which require a graduate education.

Nutrition Minor

This minor sequence is recommended for students majoring in the related
health disciplines such as child development, family and consumer sciences
education, nursing and allied health, food sen ice management, and health
and physical education. Students electing a minor in nutrition must com-
plete 15 credits ofcoursework from the courses listed I he completion of
this minor neither meets the requirements foi practice as a credentialed
nutritionist nor satisfies the academic requirements of the Commission on
Registration lor the American Dietetic Association as .1 registered dietitian

Required Program-Liberal Studies

I he department, through its Health and Wellness course in the Liberal
Studies program, seeks to enhance the overall well-being of Students
through instruction planned to promote and maintain desirable levc
physical, mental, emotional, and social well-being. Self-responsibility in the
following dimensions of wellness is emphasized: nutritional awareness,
stress awareness and management, exercise and fitness, substance use and
abuse, and sexually transmitted diseases AIDS. The importance ol reducing
risk factors for chronic degenerative disease and managing lifestyle factors
lor promotion of health is presented with implication lor both the present
and future. Information is provided during class lectures and enhanced bv a
variety ol practical learning experiences which give students opportunities
for self-assessment and personal application of the subject matter.

In addition, the department otters a variety of I -credit activity courses
focusing on physical fitness and the development of skills essential for
recreation and lifetime sports Instruction is offered in many activities
including golf, resistive exercise, scuba, swimming, and tennis.


Page 81

The university's Liberal Studies requirements require that each student suc-
cessfully complete HPED 143 or its alternates, l'DNT 143 or NURS 14V
Students may also elect to take 4 credits of the R.OTC program (MLSC
101-102) as an alternate to the wellness courses. Activity courses will con-
tinue to be offered, although they are no longer required. It is encouraged
and recommended that students choose these courses as elective credits.

Bachelor of Science Degree-Physical Education and Sport

The Bachelor of Science degree with a major in Physical Education and
Sport provides greater emphasis on sport science subject matter/content
and less on pedagogy. Students who select this degree program generally
apply their knowledge in the areas of exercise science, community and
corporate fitness, cardiac rehabilitation, sport industry management, and/or
executive fitness programming. The physical education and sport degree
program is a non-teacher certification progTam. Students pursuing this
degree may be required to purchase a personal liability insurance policy and
obtain certain clearances before beginning the preprofessional experience.
the internship, or any other field experience on or off campus.

Three specialty programs of study have been developed for the degree
program in Physical Education and Sport. These programs, in addition to
the Nutrition minor within the Physical Education and Sport program, and
a business minor in conjunction with the Sport Administration program,
provide students with an innovative, relevant, and challenging curriculum
and at the same time encourage the promotion of interdisciplinary work.
Course content is focused toward specific professions, as well as toward dif-
ferent national credentialing possibilities. Student internships and prepro-
fessional experiences can be more appropriately focused to enhance
opportunities for postgraduate employment. Furthermore, these programs
provide emphasis in specific subject content areas and teach skills neces-
sary for students to assume leadership roles in careers related to the health
fitness industry as well as the sport science industry.


This program of study is designed to provide students with the knowledge
and skills necessary to assume leadership roles, both instructional and
administrative, in a variety of professional settings. These opportunities
include school districts, both for profit and nonprofit community
organizations, and aquatic coaching.

Exercise Science

IUP's Exercise Science program is accredited by the Commission on
Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs according to standards
established by the Committee on Accreditation for the Exercise Sciences.
This program provides students with the knowledge, skills, and abilities to
seek employment in private and commercial fitness clubs, medical fitness
facilities, sport specific and conditioning facilities, and clinical settings such
as cardiac and pulmonary rehabilitation programs. This program has an
academic core, specialty classes in exercise assessment, programming, and
prescription and opportunities for work site experience.

While students may select Exercise Science as one of several tracks in the
Health and Physical Education Department, students must demonstrate
above-average academic performance by maintaining programmatic
standards including: ( 1 ) minimum 2.5 cumulative GPA for transfer students
outside and within IUP; (2| a minimum of a "C" grade in major core 1 xer-
