Where does my path start?


You will complete an Associate of Arts - Direct Transfer Agreement (AA-DTA) at Shoreline.

Once you complete your Shoreline degree, you can transfer to a four-year school to earn a Bachelor’s of Science in Nutrition and Food Science. Some Nutrition and Food Science programs require additional science and math courses beyond what is required by the AA-DTA degree. Consult with an advisor for options; you may want to consider an Associate in Science Transfer (AS-T) Track 1 degree.

What courses should I take?

This unofficial guide is intended to support you as you prepare for your major. Please consult with an advisor and your chosen four-year school(s), as program and admissions requirements vary and may change without notice.
