Department of Nutrition and Dietetics
The Department of Nutrition and Dietetics offers degree programs that lead to professional careers. Graduates are prepared to be registration eligible; and upon passing boards, be employed as clinical dietitians in hospitals and as directors of health-care and school food service facilities. Some own private practices, offering consulting services to long-term care facilities, sports teams, and other venues. The classroom-based B.S and M.S. coordinated programs that lead to RD/RDN (registered dietitian/registered dietitian nutritionist) eligibility are accredited by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics’ Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics. As a coordinated program, both didactic coursework and 1,200 hours of supervised practice are included in the curriculum. In addition to the ACEND-accredited coordinated programs, two master’s-level degrees (online and classroom-based) are offered for dietitians with bachelor's degrees who want to further their educations.
