    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class helps you understand the basics of human nutrition, and covers basic composition of food and how the body utilizes it. This class is enjoyable if you actively pay attention and don't miss class. It seems like quite a bit of work, especially the individual food plans, but Professor Garcia does a great job of answering your questions.

    Course highlights:

    This class definitely cleared up some confusion I had about nutrition, and the professor was very honest about real world information. Basic chemical composition of food was covered, but we weren't expected to know it for the test. I liked that her lectures were easy to follow.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't come into this course with a bad attitude, and don't expect to get by on the bare minimum. You must devote time to studying and working on the structured food plans-don't fall behind! Many students didn't take the food plans seriously and all the little points they missed added up at the end of the semester. If you actively listen and participate like a mature adult, you will have no problem passing this class.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend HNDS 251 because I learned a lot from the instructor and the required course material. All of the material was relevant and utilized in exams, homework, and projects. I took this course online. The workload was not overwhelming and it was very organized! My instructor was very thorough, detail-oriented, and had a passion for nutrition!

    Course highlights:

    I gained a profound amount of knowledge from the daily assignments. At first, it will be overwhelming because there are 40 questions. However, students are given a week to complete the assignment.The assignments are really helpful during exam time. Take notes and do your best to answer all of the questions! I advise students not to procrastinate in this class! As long as you keep up and complete the required coursework for this course, you should not have a problem! Take advantage of the discussion board! Students give great feedback. If you have questions for the professor, then use "ask professor".

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Complete the weekly assignments, take good notes during the powerpoints, utilize Learn Smart, ask questions, buy an agenda to write down due dates!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class is a great class to introduce the idea of Nutrition to any major. It does have a lot of information but it is easily comprehendible for everyone. I had a few friends that have never even thought about this type of class, but took it and really excelled well in it.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights are going over macronutrients in food (carbs, fats, proteins) and understand why each of them are important to our body, also how they can effect our body. This class also goes over the importance of a healthy diet and how now having one could be life threatening. It is a very good class for awareness.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be open minded about this course. It does start of very slow and seems like everything you would hear in an ad about healthy living. This course is very helpful to your health and is interesting once the ball is rolling. You will need to study just to learn the vocabulary because it does require medical terms.
