NDSU requires that all students complete a selection of courses as part of their General Education. HNES intends to offer the following listed courses in Spring and Fall semester either on site and/or by distance learning. The distance learning courses are taught through Blackboard with some courses having on-campus, face to face requirements. While a course may be advertised for a particular semester, the number of enrollments in a course will determine if the advertised course is actually offered. It is the responsibility of all students to check if the listed courses will be offered in the semester required.
Students pay an additional course fee for the distance learning courses. The following courses can be taken as fulfilling the General Education requirement:
HNES 100 Concepts of Fitness and Wellness (2 credits)
HNES 111 Wellness (3 credits)
HNES 200 Principles of Nutrition (3 credits)
HNES 217 Personal and Community Health (3 credits)
HNES 250 Nutrition Science (3 credits)
HNES 270 Consumer Issues in Food and Nutrition (3 credits)
