Nutrition Program Overview

The Bachelor of Science in Nutrition (120 s.h.) prepares graduates to work as nutrition educators and counselors to serve clients in hospitals, worksite, community and school-based wellness and fitness programs. The BS in Nutrition is a stand-alone degree program, however students can apply for admission into a highly competitive dietetics concentration in their second year in the program.

Students who are accepted into the dietetics concentration will participate in coursework that provides the foundation for them to pursue the Master of Science in Nutrition & Dietetics to become Registered Dietitians. Students must apply to the professional phase of study (junior and senior years in the program) in the spring of their sophomore year. This degree is accredited as a Coordinated Program in Dietetics from Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics (ACEND)
