Sports Nutrition Program Profile
Sports nutrition is a rapidly growing field of study that combines knowledge of exercise science and human nutrition. Careers in sports nutrition lead to work with individuals and groups who are healthy, active, and highly competitive or are seeking to develop or rebuild an active, healthy lifestyle.
Acadia provides a progression of sports nutrition courses that is designed for students who seek to better understand how sport, exercise, food, and nutrition affects sports health and performance. These courses can be taken in combination with the Nutrition with Kinesiology option program. These courses can prepare students who may like to pursue careers in sports nutrition that may include, but is not limited to, corporate wellness centers, fitness centers, university, and commercial athletic teams.
