Honours Bachelor of Science (Human Nutrition) -transfer option

Human Nutrition is offered under the Department of Health Studies and Emergency Management at Cape Breton University. A number of students choose to begin their studies in this program at CBU and follow a clear set of course guidelines to meet all transfer requirements, in order to finish the program at another specified university. Presently, CBU and Mount Saint Vincent University as well as CBU and the University of Prince Edward Island have signed formal articulation transfer agreements while CBU and St. Francis Xavier University have an informal transfer arrangement.

A degree in Human Nutrition opens doors to exciting career opportunities. Cape Breton University offers courses in Nutrition, Chemistry, Biology, Microbiology, Mathematics, Business, Humanities, Social Sciences and electives that will allow students to complete the first two years of an Honours degree in Human Nutrition at CBU. Students who maintain the minimum averages specified by the receiving university can then transfer and complete their Nutrition degree at another specified university, where they enter the program as third year students.
