Nutrition and Food Sciences
Bachelor of Science (BS)
University of Vermont in Burlington, VT
The B.S. in Nutrition & Food Sciences (NFS) is our most flexible major: It allows you to customize your coursework to fit your educational and career goals. As an NFS major, you will select NFS courses in addition to core college requirements. An NFS degree will prepare you for a career in the commercial food processing industry, the federal government or academic research. Americans are increasingly demanding nutritious, tasty and ultra-convenient foods and, as a result, the food science field is booming. On a more sober note, the vulnerability of our food system (to food-borne illnesses and bioterrorism) demands some serious problem-solving and scientific research. An NFS major, with a focus on food science electives, will give you entry into these important careers. NFS is a perfect curriculum for pre-medical studies because you`ll get the same solid foundation in general and biological sciences that you would if you were to pursue a more general science, plus you'll come away with an area of expertise. Consider the role diet plays in the prevention and treatment of chronic conditions, such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes and hypertension. An NFS background will enable you to pursue a graduate education and a career that embraces a holistic approach to health care.

Dietetics, Nutrition, and Food Sciences
Bachelor of Science (BS)
University of Vermont in Burlington, VT
Dietetics is a growing profession as health care moves from treatment to prevention. Health-care reform and policies discussed in Washington and across the country all include prevention related components. Although many health professionals are interested in prevention, Registered Dietitians are at the cutting edge of prevention, because so many preventable diseases and conditions are tied to food and nutrition. Faculty in the Department of Nutrition and Food Sciences recognize the great value to all undergraduate students to participate in some kind of field or community placement. Therefore, students majoring in dietetics are required to successfully complete at least one credit in a practicum course. Dietetics is a profession concerned with the science and art of human nutritional care, an essential component of human health science. The didactic program in Dietetics is accredited by the: Accreditation Council for Education and Dietetics Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. This program prepares students for careers as Registered Dietitians by providing the undergraduate requirements needed to apply to dietetic internships. To become a Registered Dietitian, students must complete the didactic program in Dietetics, complete an ACEND accredited supervised practice/internship program, and pass the National Registration Examination for Dietitians. This major prepares graduates to counsel people about the preventive and therapeutic role of nutrition in the maintenance of health and fitness.

Animation & Production Design
Bachelor of Arts (BA)
Bennington College in Bennington, VT
Animation incorporates both the visual and performing arts. Students learn the fundamentals of producing an animation: from using stop motion and single cell drawings, to creating models and objects and erasing drawings, to using CGI and other techniques to create a world. The software and hardware covered includes DragonFrame, MAYA, Adobe After Effects, Premier, Photoshop, laser cutting for silhouettes and forms, green screen areas, multi-plane set ups, copy stands, and motion tracks. Subjects used as catalysts for the animations range from current affairs, narratives, to poems, short stories, or visual stimuli. Students are encouraged to consider their work in a wide historical context as they work to master technical developments. Students, at times, draw on and combine their work in other areas when creating advanced projects, whether music, Chinese, French, philosophy, biology, drama, or other visual arts areas. The emphasis is on exploration, bringing life to mundane objects, and giving a voice to a drawing, an image, an inanimate object. At the end of each term there is a public showing of the final animations from each class. Recent graduate schools students were accepted into include: Cal Arts, Royal College of Art, London, University of Southern California, University of South Wales, UK, University of Edinburgh, UK. Projection Design Projection design reaches across the visual arts, drama, music, and dance. Designs and projections are developed to alter a space, bring in more information to a theatre production or act as a texture for surfaces. Students use live manipulated footage, previously created footage, and project on a variety of surfaces and spaces. The software Isadora, QLab, and various editing software are used. Set Design Set/production design is anchored in the drama program and gives students the opportunity to learn the basics of designing for a performance, as well as opportunities to design student- and faculty-directed productions. Additionally, students have created puppet shows range from small, one-person events to much larger affairs.
