Nutrition Science Director Kim Milano shared how the program focus is on experiential learning, preparing students to enter the job market earlier

Beginning in fall 2021, North Central College’s School of Education and Health Sciences (SEHS) will offer a bachelor of science degree in nutrition science. Experiential opportunities will be a hallmark of the North Central nutrition program, allowing students to be highly competitive for internships, graduate school and the job market, while at the same time giving them a wealth of practical knowledge.

Nutrition Science Program Director Kim Milano spoke with various media outlets on how this program will center on experiential learning, ultimately preparing students to enter the job market earlier.

"What we're doing is trying to give students a really good idea of what they would be doing after they graduate and giving them sort of hands-on ways to apply the concepts of nutrition science," Milano said. "We believe by doing that, it's going to be internalized, and they're going to be much more competitive when they get out there in the job market."
