12-Month Online Nutrition Consultant Program from the comfort of your home!

The Nutrition Consultant program provides students with in-depth knowledge of whole-foods nutrition as it contributes to the prevention of illness and the promotion of optimal health.

Graduates are prepared to work as nutrition professionals and provide expert recommendations for diet, targeted nutrients, and lifestyle habits that support their clients in slowing the progression of chronic illness and attaining optimal health. Students are trained to understand social patterns of health inequities and account for their clients’ unique circumstances and needs in terms of access, support, and available resources. Students gain this expertise through the following:

  • our science-based nutrition curriculum, which considers disparities in food access and health care that underlie health inequities in different populations
  • practical, hands-on application of nutrition education, health coaching, and nutritional consulting with clients
  • our business curriculum, uniquely tailored for the nutrition consultant

Bauman College offered a more holistic approach to health than other dietetics programs, and I was able to work a full-time job, and have a baby while doing the program. Bauman College gave me information and tools about how diet, sleep and exercise affect us, and fueled my curiosity to learn more.
