Comprising 755 hours of academics, theory and practice, core program objectives are modeled after the published educational standards of the National Association of Nutrition Professionals, ensuring that students receive a comprehensive, scientific education of holistic nutrition and how it contributes to the prevention of illness and the promotion of healthy living.

In partnership with the National Academy of Sports Medicine, the SWIHA Fitness Nutrition Educator focus, in combination with prior nutrition coursework, will prepare students to pass their Fitness Nutrition and Behavioral Change Specialist certifications.

For those that want to awaken their inner chef and enhance their practice by preparing delicious healthy meals for clients or educating them to do the same, students can choose the Natural Food Culinary Specialist concentration.

With an emphasis on spirit, service and transformation, the Urban Farming and Conscious Living specialization teaches students how to grow their own food and how to spread what they learn throughout their community.
