Department of Human Nutrition - Dietetics

The Department of Nutrition offers a variety of educational opportunities for students to:

  •  Begin or advance careers in the nutrition field
  •  Prepare for graduate education
  •  Enhance professional and personal growth
  •  Enrich the well-being of our communities

Beginning January 1, 2024, the Commission on Dietetic Registration (CDR) has changed the degree requirement for dietitian registration eligibility from a Bachelor's degree to a Master's degree (in any field) in addition to the current requirement of a verification statement from an ACEND accredited dietetics program.


The mission of the Nutrition Department is to prepare diverse students for successful careers in food, nutrition and dietetics by providing quality education that is culturally sensitive and instills a desire for life-long learning. Graduates will be prepared for supervised practice leading to eligibility for the CDR credentialing exam to become a registered dietitian nutritionist.
