Overview

The Dietetics program prepares students to apply knowledge of food and nutrition to health. Students can choose one of three tracks within the Dietetics program, depending on their career and professional goals. The available tracks are as follow…: 1) the Didactic Program in Dietetics (DPD) is an ACEND-accredited program that prepares students for entry into a post-undergraduate internship program to become a Registered Dietitian (RD), 2) the Nutrition and Wellness track prepares students to work in communities as health educators, focusing on health promotion and disease prevention, and 3) the Nutrition Science track is a science-based program that prepares students for medical school and/or graduate school.

Dietetics students receive hands-on experience in a variety of clinical, community, and foodservice settings. Some examples include provision of nutrition education to senior citizens, participation in University health fairs, clinical exposure in local hospitals, and meal preparation and management for both small and large groups of people.
