Nutrition and Food Service Management

School: Langara College
Faculty: Career Programs
Degree: Diploma ; Online ; University Transfer
Field of Study: Foodservice Systems Administration/Management
Description: The Nutrition & Food Service Management Program is offered online with courses delivered on the Internet, and is supplemented with printed material and computer conferences. Students can participate when it suits their daily schedule, working in their homes at times convenient to them. All food service courses are delivered online, as are the majority of the other program support courses. Support courses may be taken online or in person at Langara College or at a college close to students. Langara courses are offered on a semester schedule with specific start and end dates. Most courses are taught over a full semester, but there are some compressed courses offered over a one-half semester (approximately 7 weeks). Online courses from Langara College are offered via Blackboard and are in asynchronous mode; students can participate when it suits their daily schedule. Students need access to a computer and the Internet on a daily basis to be able to complete course work. High speed computer access is recommended, but not required. Students should expect to spend 8-10 hours per week on each course for readings, assignments, etc.

The curriculum incorporates core food service courses in nutrition, food production, and food service management, as well as academic studies in related disciplines. Students are provided with the opportunity to apply basic concepts of food service management through a variety of practicum and fieldwork experiences. This prepares graduates for employment in health care facilities, commercial catering services, educational facilities, private practice, education, and research. Graduates of the program are eligible for membership in the Canadian Society of Nutrition Management and related provincial associations.
