Dietetics Programs

Food and nutrition—two areas you'd love to build your expertise in as a professional. Choose one of the two paths to success through our Dietetics programs and prepare for your future career.

What You'll Study

The Dietetics programs prepare you for a career in food and nutrition as a Registered Dietitian/Nutritionist (RDN) or Nutrition, and offer the chance to focus your studies to personalize your degree.

RDNs enhance health and well-being of patients/clients, communities and populations, and deliver quality products, programs, and services including Medical Nutrition Therapy.

Our Dietetics programs are Accredited by ACEND.
