Nutrition and Dietetics (Community Nutrition) BS


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Academic Organization

This program is designed to meet the needs of students who want training in health promotion, disease prevention, program development, and nutrition interventions. In addition to a strong foundation in nutrition, with background knowledge in food and food systems, this emphasis requires a minor in public health.  However, this emphasis does not allow students to enter a dietetic internship.  Students who wish to pursue the registered dietitian nutritionist credential should refer to the didactic program in dietetics or consult with the program director for additional requirements.
