I. Student Dietetic Association's Nutritional Science Workshop
Are you trying to decide what major or minor is right for you? Are you majoring in nutrition and trying to decide whether to choose the dietetics or physiology and metabolism track? Do you want more information on what you can do with a major in nutrition and what classes you should be taking?

Then, Berkeley's Student Dietetic Association has an event just for you! Come to SDA’s Nutritional Science Workshop on Monday, March 8th at 6PM in 138 Morgan and learn about the two different tracks, the minor, what you can do with them after graduation, what classes to take, and more! The workshop is FREE and open to all interested Cal students.
