Nutrition sciences is the 105th most popular degree in America, with 3,334 students receiving their bachelors degree last year. It just beat out #106 Visual and Performing Arts, and narrowly lost to #104 Entrepreneurship.

The degree is offered at a total of 93 colleges across the nation, and is the 180th most widely offered degree. It is only offered at 10% of the Top 100 Best Colleges in America.

It is also worth noting that 63% of colleges offering nutrition sciences are public making it a quite accessible field.

The far west produces the most nutrition sciences graduates, largely led by California State University-Los Angeles, while it’s the Southeastern Conference that leads conference totals. As far as states, California ranks highest, with particular help from California State University-Los Angeles and University of California-Davis.

All that being said, no individual school produces more nutrition sciences graduates than University of Alabama at Birmingham, which graduated 181 students last year alone. Although size is critical, another important factor to consider is the program’s density (the percent of all students that study nutrition sciences). More students studied nutrition sciences as a percentage of total students at College of Saint Benedict than any other college.
