SUMMARY

Majoring in Nutrition Sciences is not only a valuable choice, but often a critical first step for pupils wanting to begin a career as a dietary aide, a nutritional consultant, or a nutrition educator. Interestingly, nutrition sciences is pretty common being the 105th most popular degree. Last year alone, there were 3,334 nutrition sciences graduates. In-state tuition for nutrition sciences at private schools is, on average, 3.7 times more spendy than their public peers.

With only 93 universities having programs for nutrition sciences there could be a smaller selection of institutions you can choose from. If you are looking to immerse yourself with other nutrition sciences students, consider looking at colleges in California which have the most students admitted to nutrition sciences annually. Zooming out, the top region to study nutrition sciences is in the Far West region with California State University-Los Angeles, University of California-Davis, and San Diego State University best representing the region. Interestingly, our pick for the best conference to study nutrition sciences is the Southeastern Conference with University of Florida, Louisiana State University and Agricultural & Mechanical College, and Texas A & M University-College Station representing the conference. On that topic, our choice for the best university for nutrition sciences is Cornell University. You might also want to check out our list of the best colleges.

The best school does not have to be the 'best' school for you. There are many more facets to think about when choosing ​university. Things like campus amenities, transportation services, and food would affect your inclinations on where to go to university. At Authority, we've examined the pros and cons for you. If, for example, you are interested in which nutrition sciences university is home to the best campus, the winner is New York University. If, for example, you are mostly interested in which school boasts the top campus, we have an entire page dedicated to that. We have carefully pored through student reviews, government databases, professor reviews, and more so we can compare all U.S. majors in an unbiased and informative way. You can explore our well researched list for the schools with the best student life here and, from that list, our pick for the college with the best student life for nutrition sciences is Cornell University. Curious why? Keep scrolling to learn more about Authority's top selections. Many of our conclusions just might surprise you.

If expense is a major influence in your decisions, you might consider avoiding Cornell University. Cornell University appears to be the most expensive college for nutrition sciences, at least regarding out of state attendance. We have an entire page for the most expensive colleges that might put the price tag of Cornell University into perspective. Additionally, you could be interested to know that nutrition sciences is the 166th most expensive major in the US, with an average bill of $32,700. On a broader scale, the most costly state for nutrition sciences nationally is Ohio with costs at the primary college, Case Western Reserve University, of $50,450. Even more broadly, the most costly region of the U.S. for nutrition sciences is the Mid East region which is best demonstrated with Cornell University with a cost of $56,550, Syracuse University with a cost of $50,616, and Drexel University with a cost of $52,146.

Our cheapest region for nutrition sciences is the Rocky Mountains region which is represented by Metropolitan State University of Denver with a cost of $20,009, University of Northern Colorado with a cost of $19,854, and Brigham Young University-Provo with a cost of $5,790. More optimistically, the most affordable university for nutrition sciences is Texas Tech University. Our full list of the most affordable schools can be found here.

In-state attendees can expect to pay around $11,300 for a degree in nutrition sciences. The cost balloons significantly to a median of $28,600 for the out-of-state public-school student. Our choice for the university with the best value for nutrition sciences: Cornell University. Here you can find our comprehensive list of the universities we see as being the best value overall. Bear in mind, this discussion is predicated on being an out-of-state student. The value proposition changes when in-state tuition costs are considered, as such, we are using out-of-state tuition as the baseline.

Earnings for nutrition sciences students can cover a wide range, but within two years leaving college students will typically earn around $47,200. While there can be a lot of variation in pay; top earners can rake in up to $76,800. Even right out of university, the minimum earning jobs within the nutrition sciences field earn $29,000, which could be worse. The highest earning graduates from nutrition sciences come from Cornell University and if you are looking for colleges with all of the highest earning graduates, Authority has that too.

The overall diversity of nutrition sciences ranks solid, coming in the 64th percentile of all programs. The university with the most composite diversity for nutrition sciences is New York University and here you can find our general list of the colleges which have the most diversity. The financial diversity of Nutrition Sciences sits only in the 65th percentile of all majors. Racial diversity is greater than financial diversity, ranking in the 73rd percentile. White undergraduates make up the largest share at 54% of those majoring in nutrition sciences. Additionally, 84% of undergrads seeking a nutrition sciences degree are women.

The median rating for nutrition sciences' professors is 4 stars, a rating which is actually the average across all majors; which is a fine. If you are searching for the most popular nutrition sciences professor in the nation, look no further than Claire Garrido-Ortega from California State University-Long Beach. It may be shocking, but the highest ranked professors of nutrition sciences from student rankings are at California State University-Long Beach. As we including information beyond basic rankings it becomes clear that the college with the overall best instructors for nutrition sciences is New York University. You can find more detail on our ever evolving ranking methodology of the best overall professors here, along with some of the top instructors in the country.

Finally, the hardest school to get into for nutrition sciences is Cornell University. While we think of this list more as a novelty, we do have a comprehensive list of the hardest colleges to get into. That being said, we hope you believe that approaching the education process from context only informed by superlatives could be said to be the root of many of higher education's fundamental problems. We at Authority encourage you to look at some of our other pages on individual colleges and peruse a couple of our insightful background pages on important details to think about as your college search develops.
