People are increasingly interested in the nutritional requirements for obtaining good health and a long life. Registered dietitians work with people of all ages, cultures, and economic means. They learn to understand people as individuals, thereby helping their clients solve their nutritional needs. Registered dietitians are health professionals who apply the science and art of food and nutrition.
The BS program in Nutrition Management offers a challenging curriculum that prepares students to become Registered Dietitians and practice in diverse settings such as; hospitals, HMO’s, private practice, other healthcare facilities, universities, research facilities, food and pharmaceutical companies, public health organizations, public wellness programs, school foodservice, commercial foodservice, journalism, marketing, sports nutrition, and corporate wellness programs.
The Nutrition Management program has been granted accreditation by the Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics (ACEND), a division of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (AND), 120 South Riverside Plaza, Suite 2000, Chicago, IL. 60606-6995, 312-899-0040 ext. 5400.
