Instructor notes: This is a 100% online course that does not have any on campus meetings. Since this the Summer session is a short term, this is a VERY fast-paced course with extensive reading and assignments due every week. You must be able to purchse the textbook and diet analysis software before class begins. You must have a reliable computer with high-speed internet access. This is NOT a course that can be successfully completed by simply working on coursework on the weekend. Information regarding course materials will be sent to enrolled students one week before class starts. Communication with students is conducted through email Monday-Friday.
