Cape Breton University recently signed a formal articulation agreement with Mount Saint Vincent University (MSVU) that will allow Bachelor of Science (BSc) students to earn an Honours BSc in Human Nutrition.
“We are very pleased to sign this formal agreement with MSVU allowing students from Cape Breton to study closer to home for the first two years before continuing their studies at another Maritime university to complete their degree program in human nutrition. Such agreements between universities foster the spirit of collaboration which is becoming increasingly important at a time when universities around the globe feel the pressure to compete for students ” says Dr. Carolin Kreber, Dean of the School of Professional Studies.
The agreement will enable students to do their first two years of a BSc degree at CBU and then transfer to MSVU to complete the degree. This transfer option will open up opportunities for students who want to work in the high demand, well-paying nutrition related fields including dietetics, health promotion and research.
“The whole area of food and health is receiving greatly increased attention as people want to better understand the relationship between health and food” says Dr. Edward Barre, Professor of Human Nutrition.
