The programs in our Department of Nutrition educate and develop nutrition professionals who are committed to improving the nutritional health of individuals and communities, locally, and globally. UNE's program inspires and prepares you to become a qualified nutrition professional with a rigorous academic education based on science. With the practical skills you develop, you are prepared to implement nutrition-related initiatives that will improve the health of individuals in your local community as well as participate in interventions abroad.
As a student in our Department of Nutrition, you study on UNE's scenic Biddeford Campus, where the waters of the Saco River flow into the Atlantic Ocean. Over the years, this confluence of natural resources has inspired students and faculty from around the world. Recently named the youngest city in Maine, Biddeford and its twin city, Saco, boast an up-and-coming, hip downtown offering delicious eateries, exciting social and cultural events, and more. With the transformation of the old Biddeford/Saco mills into restaurants, breweries, housing, fitness facilities, salons, and retailers, there is something for everyone to explore in downtown. Looking to try a new type of food, grab a coffee, or shop for locally-made clothes? Biddeford/Saco has it all.
