Nutrition Science
       BS in Nutrition and Dietetics
Our Bachelor of Science degree is primarily an on-campus, face-to-face curriculum which can provide many opportunities for students throughout their undergraduate Didactic Program in Dietetics (DPD) as well as in their careers. Registered Dietitians (RD) and Nutritionists are professionals who translate the science of nutrition into education and life style practices that can enhance growth, health and disease prevention. The Bachelor of Science degree in Nutrition and Dietetics is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics (ACEND) of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. ACEND is responsible for accrediting programs that prepare students for careers as Registered Dietitians (RD) and is recognized by the United States Department of Education. Completion of the DPD program does not guarantee admission into a supervised practice or dietetic internship which is required to become a Registered Dietitian (RD). If you would like to learn more about our program outcomes they will be made available upon request. If you would like to learn more about becoming a registered dietitian click here.
