Dietetics and Nutrition
The Dietetics and Nutrition program seeks to meet the growing needs of the dietetics and nutrition industry by training entry-level registered dietitians and community nutrition and nutrition science professionals. Two undergraduate academic areas of study are offered including a Bachelor of Science in Dietetics and a Minor in Nutrition.
Dietetics and nutrition also offers a master's degree in dietetics and nutrition. Please see Graduate Programs for more information.
Bachelor of Science in Dietetics
The Bachelor of Science in Dietetics provides the first step to meeting the eligibility requirements to take the national Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN) exam. RDNs are health care professionals who provide medical nutrition therapy and consultative service in health care and wellness settings.
The Nutrition Minor allows those students pursuing degrees other than nutrition or dietetics the opportunity to minor in nutrition.
