The Bachelor of Science in Integrative Nutrition is unlike any other undergraduate program in nutrition currently offered. As science continues to examine issues such as the use of dietary supplements and herbs as part of a comprehensive nutrition program for good health, an academic program that takes a responsible and integrative approach to the use of supplements together with diet is of vital importance. Huntington University of Health Sciences’ B.S. program in Integrative Nutrition is designed to do just that. HUHS uses the term “integrative nutrition” to refer to the incorporation of evidence-based complementary approaches into mainstream (conventional) nutrition and related health care modalities.
Upon completion of the Bachelor of Science in Integrative Nutrition degree program, the graduate will be able to:
- Demonstrate problem solving, critical thinking, and communication skills to course work in the health sciences and nutrition.
- Apply principles and concepts from the biological, behavioral, and social sciences into decision making in the health sciences and nutrition.
- Apply business principles to a CAM practice.
- Use mathematical and statistical tools to calculate and analyze herbal and nutritional components.
- Demonstrate and apply knowledge of general, functional, and clinical nutrition to health and disease.
- Promote healthy nutrition practices for clients through health and nutrition education.
- Support the appropriate and recommended use of nutraceuticals.
- Apply integrative assessments to the eating behaviors of clients.
- Construct appropriate integrative nutrition plans.

What is Asynchronous Learning?
Asynchronous learning is a general term used to describe forms of education, instruction, and learning that do not occur in the same place or at the same time. The term is most commonly applied to various forms of digital and online learning in which students learn from instruction that is not being delivered in person or in real time. Yet asynchronous learning may also encompass a wide variety of instructional interactions, including email exchanges between teachers, online discussion boards, and course-management systems that organize instructional materials and correspondence, among many other possible variations.
