A minor in nutrition may be earned through the Department of Nutritional Sciences. The minor in nutrition at TCU requires successful completion of 19 hours with a grade of “C” or better in each of the following courses. Classes for the minor in nutrition may not be taken on a Pass/No Credit basis.

Students will not be allowed to enroll in an NTDT course for the minor if they have not completed the prerequisite courses for that specific course.
