Dietetics Programs

Food and nutrition—two areas you'd love to build your expertise in as a professional. Choose one of the three 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 Dietetic Technician, Registered (NDTR), 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. NDTRs work under the supervision of an RDN in providing direct patient/client nutrition care, and may work independently in the food service business and industry, conducting nutrient analyses, and managing food and nutrition services in a variety of settings.

Our Coordinated Bachelor's Program in Dietetics is Accredited through 2020 by ACEND.
