The Dietetics curriculum is approved by the Commission on Accreditation/Approval for Dietetics Education of the American Dietetic Association. The course offerings are sequenced to provide experiences that become increasingly complex and build upon previous knowledge and experiences. Supporting courses are selected to provide requisite knowledge for professional courses. Students combine classroom experience with field experiences, and are required to complete a practicum at approved facilities. Additional related field experience is strongly recommended.
Program graduates are eligible to apply for supervised practice programs and, upon successful completion are qualified to write the Registration Examination for Dietitians. Registered dietitians are employed by industry, public health services, hospitals, food and health services, and other local, state, national and international agencies with research and educational programs.
