You can earn 400-level supporting course credit for serving as a TA (Teaching Assistant) for any nutrition course. Being a TA can also be a valuable learning experience for undergraduates and one that you can definitely include on your resume. By assisting with the grading of assignments, students will also get a better understanding of their chosen field and the nutritional value of foods. Additionally, helping run a course may broaden your perspective for those thinking about teaching as a career option, whether it be in the classroom or within a clinical setting.
