Who is an Intro to Nutrition class for?

Nutrition is often a mandatory college class for students earning a degree in healthcare, such as nursing. Many non-science majors also take this class to fulfill a gen-ed science requirement. This nutrition course earns 3 credits. Introduction to Nutrition at StraighterLine is similar to the class offered at colleges and universities across the nation. In StraighterLine’s Intro to Nutrition, students go at their own pace, are provided practice exercises and tests online, and are supported by 24/7 tutoring support and our student advisor team. Our course offers an experience that is more convenient, flexible, and ideal for students juggling a busy schedule or wanting to move through coursework quickly.

We have a 24/7 Tutoring Center that provides you access to homework feedback and study help, informative videos and assignment guides, and an evaluation process that’s both objective and efficient. You can also get assistance with assignments and real-time support as you work through your coursework. Timely feedback allows our students to complete assignments quickly and at their own pace. “I was able to move at my own pace… but I always had help. Tutoring was wonderful and available… no matter what time of day.” - Madison, Arizona

What kind of work and assignments should I expect?

Students can expect assignments that are clear, engaging, and even a little bit of fun. (Yes, science can be fun!) You will be graded on a series of short quizzes and have the opportunity to regularly assess yourself with ungraded practice tests. In Introduction to Nutrition, you’ll learn about nutrients and how the body uses them. You’ll assess how good or bad nutrition affects a person’s health, and how nutrient needs change at different stages of life. You will also learn how psychology, society, and your own values and beliefs can have an impact on how you eat.

How quickly will I have to complete assignments?

There are no homework deadlines or required hours; students work at their own pace. The courses are always available online so you can go as fast as you want, whenever you want.

Any advice for students enrolling in nutrition classes?

To set yourself up for academic success, we recommend setting concrete daily goals, including logging into your course right away and taking advantage of student support.
