Nutrition Science & Dietetics

The Nutrition Science and Dietetics Program offers bachelor of science (B.S.) degrees in nutrition/dietetics and nutrition science, and master of arts (M.A.) and master of science (M.S.) degrees in nutrition science. At the undergraduate level, students in nutrition/dietetics prepare to work in a variety of health and health promotion fields, many as registered dietitians.

In nutrition science, students study the biological and physical sciences, and prepare to work for major food or pharmaceutical companies, or to pursue post-graduate work in medicine, dentistry, education, or health care.

At the graduate level, students study the theory and application of nutrition science and prepare for research, teaching, or practice in clinical, community, corporate, government, or educational settings.

The Nutrition Science and Dietetics Program is also home to a dietetic internship. The nutrition/dietetics undergraduate and graduate programs and the dietetic internship program are accredited by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics’ Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics.

Graduates of the nutrition programs work in settings such as hospitals, long-term care facilities, and health clinics, as well as in non-traditional settings such as journalism, business, marketing, sales, and public relations.
