About the courseThe Dietetics and Nutrition Management concentration provides a broad background in clinical nutrition, health promotion, and food service management. The science-based curriculum includes nutritional assessment, application of food theory, and course work focusing on nutritional counseling and medical nutrition therapy. The concentration is designed to prepare students for a dietetic internship and a professional career in medical nutrition therapy or community-based nutrition programs. The Accredited Didactic Program option of the Dietetics and Nutrition Management concentration is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics (ACEND) of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (AND). This concentration is open to all students interested in becoming registered dietitians. However, students must qualify to continue in the Accredited Didactic Program option by meeting the prerequisites for the Dietetic Practice Seminar (FSHN 392) in their junior year. These prerequisites are an overall GPA of 3.000 and grades of B or better in FSHN 150, FSHN 300/ FSHN 301, and basic sciences (CHEM 107/CHEM 108, or CHEM 111, CHEM 112, CHEM 113, CHEM 245, CHEM 246, LIFE 102 or BZ 110, BZ 111, BMS 300, BMS 302, FSHN 150, FSHN 300, FSHN 301).

The Childhood Nutrition option prepares students for supervisory positions in the school nutrition program. The Gerontology Nutrition option prepares students for supervisory positions in food service management for long-term care and rehabilitation, or for working with community programs providing nutrition services to older individuals.
