Dieticians apply knowledge of food and nutrition to health. They prevent or treat disease through diet. The four year ACEND-accredited program is a major component in the process to obtain the educational background and experiences required to become a registered dietitian. After graduation, a 1200 hour internship and successful completion of a national credentialing exam are required.

Students in dietetics receive hands-on experience and provide community service by providing nutrition education to senior citizens, delivering Meals-on-Wheels, participating in health fairs, working in university food service, or in local hospitals working alongside registered dietitians.

Dietetics students will…
  • Interact with qualified, dedicated faculty.
  • Be prepared for acceptance into a graduate level Dietetic Internship.
  • Receive hands on experience in a variety of settings including clinical nutrition services, food service management and community nutrition.
  • Have the opportunity to network with professionals in the field of dietetics.
