Nutrition offers two specializations: Exercise Science and Dietetics. Exercise Science prepares you to work as a nutrition educator, counselor and exercise specialist and can serve clients in hospital, work site, community and school-based wellness and fitness programs.
Dietetics springboards you into the Master of Science in Nutrition and Dietetics. Our program is designed to meet the changing criteria of the national accrediting and credentialing agencies in nutrition and dietetics, which, in 2024, will require the master’s degree for those wanting to sit for the registered dietitian certification exam.
