Nutrition and Dietetics


Our nutrition and dietetics programs prepare you for roles helping people make healthful food and nutrition choices. We offer a B.S. in Nutrition, Dietetics and Wellness, and an M.S. in Nutrition and Dietetics. Within the bachelor’s degree program, our accredited Didactic Program in Dietetics (DPD) track prepares you to apply for dietetic internships programs to become a registered dietitian – clinical nutrition experts. It is also preparation graduate study.

For those who do not pursue the DPD track, you may find rewarding careers in community agencies, schools, corporate wellness programs and fitness clubs. 

Graduate study in nutrition and dietetics offers a stand-alone master’s degree and a combined M.S. degree and dietetic internship which is designed to prepare you to work as a registered dietitian and nutritionist. This degree also advances nutrition knowledge and research skills for those who already are registered dietitians. We also offer a Certificate of Graduate Study in Eating Disorders and Obesity.
