I know that nutrition is listed under "other science" in the AACOMAS application filling but my course description reads as follows.

COURSE PREFIX: FNES COURSE NUMBER: 30
COURSE TITLE: Fitness Through Diet, Exercise, and Weight Control
SUBJECT: Family/Nutrition and Exercise Science
MINIMUM CREDITS: 3.0 MAXIMUM CREDITS: 3.0HOURS PER WEEK: 3.0

COURSE DESCRIPTION:
Current concepts and principles of nutrition, energy balance, body composition, weight control, and obesity, and physiological basis of physical conditioning. Opportunity for practical experience in managing diet and exercise programs.


Do you think it qualifies as a science?

If you are unsure, the best way is to confirm with AACOMAS. Just send them an e-mail, they're pretty responsive. I've taken nutrition before too, and in my school it is consider science but not on AACOMAS.
