eCurriculum Component in CQ Web Authoring System

e curriculum final output

The eCurriculum Component is particularly useful for colleges that want to have a clone of the program listing on their websites. This component will pull the data from eCurriculum and display that information in the format desired.

This method is much more preferable compared to managing such data on the local sites, since this data will update as eCurriculum is updated. This way, all of the information is stored in one place and will remain concurrent with the official information available on eCurriculum.

General Setup

The componet has 2 main options, to display a list of all programs in a certain college, choose Full college A-Z list in What to Display. This option will allow you to use the College dropdown to select which college to retrieve data from.

Food and Nutrition

Food and nutrition is a major firmly based in biology, chemistry and the behavioral sciences. It involves the study of the utilization of food by humans for growth and metabolism, in both normal and diseased states. The fields of food science and nutrition require coursework in biology, chemistry, physiology and biochemistry to promote an understanding of the mechanisms through which dietary factors are metabolized. After completion of the program, students will be well prepared for health related careers as well as graduate work.

Admission Requirements

It is recommended that students entering from high school have a high school GPA of at least 3.0 and an ACT score of 21 math and 22 composite. UC admits students based on academic and non-academic factors. For more information please visit the UC Admission Requirements website.


Career Possibilities

The nutrition and wellness concentration in the food and nutrition major prepares students for careers in the wellness field. This interdisciplinary curriculum provides students with coursework in nutrition, food science, kinesiology, biomechanics, sports medicine, behavior and fitness. Students are also prepared for post-graduate study in exercise physiology, nutrition, physical therapy, or related fields. Students can obtain professional certifications from the American College of Sports Medicine including the certified personal trainer and the health/fitness instructor.

The pre-medicine concentration in the food and nutrition major prepares students for careers in the medical field. The course sequence and content of this concentration have been designed to provide all of the necessary education required for admission to medical school and schools of dentistry, veterinary science, and optometry.

The Connections Program, a dual admissions baccalaureate/MD program, allows high school seniors to apply for and be accepted to both the University of Cincinnati undergraduate college and the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine simultaneously. Connections students work closely with advisors in the College of Medicine, the undergraduate college’s Pre-Professional Advising Center (PPAC) and the University Honors Program to ensure they not only have a unique and diverse college experience, but that they also meet the requirements of the program and prepare for the challenges of medical school.
