Introduction to Human Nutrition

This 4-unit course is a detailed, scientific look into nutrition with an emphasis on disease prevention and treatment. We examine and evaluate many of the confusing claims made about nutrition in books, magazines, TV and the internet. This course if offered every quarter (including the summer quarter in a condensed 6 weeks). 

2 sections of Biology 45 are being offered this fall.

Many students want to take this class online to avoid the travel time to campus, or because their schedule don't free them up for when the class is offered. Online courses are not the best learning format for every student. To get a sense if it is for you, watch this short video that is on the De Anza Distance Learning website:

A short video on what it takes to be a successful online student

Some students do not have realistic expectations as they start an online course and end up not doing well, as a result. Most students do better in Biology 45 with regular interaction with the instructor and classmates, but many students do manage well in a fully online course of this nature. Watch the video to help you decide which is the best format for you to learn and master the material of Introduction to Human Nutrition.
