The Master of Science in Nutrition and Dietetics is a program for students without undergraduate backgrounds in nutrition who want to complete the requirements to become a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist. The program provides graduates with lifelong professional skills, including research analysis and interpretation; writing, communication, and professional presentation; critical thinking; ability to evaluate the effectiveness of nutrition interventions; medical nutrition therapy; and, confidence using evidence-based guidelines in practice.
This is a 45-credit course of study that combines graduate-level ACEND-accredited Didactic Program in Dietetics (DPD) courses with master’s courses.
Full-time students may complete the program in as few as three semesters, while part-time students may complete the program at their own pace. Additional prerequisite courses may apply.
