The minor in Nutrition Promotion and Education is designed to provide students with a sound foundation of
nutrition knowledge encompassing various aspects of the science of nutrition, to create advocates for good
nutrition, and to empower future wellness, healthcare, fitness and business professionals to share nutrition
information effectively within their scope of practice.
This minor has the ability to appeal to majors who would like to expand their study to the area of nutrition.

A minor in Nutrition Promotion and Education would provide students from all majors across campus access to
coursework to supplement their major studies and provide industry-specific instruction not currently available
in their home programs.

    This program may be earned more than 50% online but not entirely online - multiple campus visits are required (varying by course).

    Save money

    UWG is often ranked as one of the most affordable accredited university of its kind, regardless of the method of delivery chosen. In addition, online courses and programs can mean a cost-savings in many non-evident ways: No more high gas charges. No childcare needed. The flexibility can allow one to maintain a job while attending school. Regardless of state residency, out-of-state non-resident students are not charged non-resident tuition for online course credit hours.


    • Total tuition costs and fees may vary, depending on the instructional method of the courses in which the student chooses to enroll.
    • The more courses a student takes in a single term, the more they will typically save in fees and total cost.
    • Face-to-Face or partially online courses are charged at the general tuition rate and all mandatory campus fees, based on the student's residency (non-residents are charged at a higher rate).
    • Fully or entirely online courses are charged at the general tuition rate plus an eTuition rate BUT with less fees and no extra charges to non-Residents.
    • Together this means that GA residents pay about the same if they take all face-to-face or partially online courses as they do if they take only fully online courses exclusively; while non-residents save money by taking fully online courses.
    • One word of caution: If a student takes a combination of face-to-face and online courses in a single term, they will pay both all mandatory campus fees and the higher eTuition rate.
