About the College
The College of Agriculture was founded in 1938 and is
the second largest by enrollment of five agricultural colleges in California.
It is the sole provider of comprehensive agricultural programs focusing on
the needs of the $1 trillion southern California economy and its 21 million
people. The College provides a unique integrative approach to agricultural
education that recognizes the strong disciplinary interdependencies related
to professional orientation and culture, basic societal needs, lifestyles,
and social and environmental responsibility. The College is well positioned to
meet the expanding demand for qualified graduates in highly specialized
fields within the agricultural, food, fiber, and animal industries. With an
enrollment of 1,542, which has grown over the last decade, the College has
evolved in step with changing urban agricultural education needs. The
Agriculture faculty recognizes the need for change and has continued to
develop a vision for its future.
About the Department
Human Nutrition and Food Science offers two Bachelor of
Science degree programs one with a major in Foods and Nutrition (with options
in Dietetics, ACEND accredited, or Nutrition Science) and the other one in
Food Science and Technology (with four emphases). We prepare students for
challenging and rewarding careers in dietetics, nutrition education,
community nutrition, public health, nutrition research, food service
management, food science and technology and Culinology.
The department is also unique in that it offers classes that mirror
traditional dietetic classes taught in Spanish for those dietetic students
that wish to work with and in the Latino community. The USDA funded project
is called Estudiante de Dietética.
The Department also offers a Master’s in Agriculture with an option in
Nutrition & Food Science. The curriculum, facilities and faculty reflect
the department’s commitment to a strong, science-based undergraduate program
that provides skills and knowledge needed by graduates to meet professional
goals. The Department will also offer a new emphasis for students called
Nutrition and Health. The Department also offers an ACEND accredited Dietetic
Internship for graduates of Cal Poly Pomona and other universities. Examples
of research/scholarly work conducted include choline requirements/status,
omega-3 lipids/status, fish oil and acne, avocado’s effects on blood lipids,
phytochemical serum status, community program assessment and interventions,
and functional foods.
