Department of Human Nutrition (DHN)

Resolution No. 65, s. 1986 enabled the offering of the Degree of Bachelor of Science in Nutrition and Dietetics (BSND) in the SY 1986 – 1987 by the Department of Home Economics which was then under the College of Teacher Education (CTE). In 1988, the Department of Human Nutrition and Dietetics (DHNF) was created when the Department of Home Economics was separated from the College of Teacher Education and became the College of Home Economics and Technology (CHET) through Resolution No. 206, s. 1988.
In June 1999, the BSND curriculum was revised integrating the 2-year Associate in Health Science Education (ASHE) through Board Resolution No., 881, s. 1999.
The Department housed another degree, Bachelor of Science in Hotel and Restaurant Management (BSHRM) in 2010. However, in 2014, Department of Hotel and Restaurant Management was created hence, leaving the BSND alone under the Department of Human Nutrition (DHN).
