Dietetics and Nutrition


Public interest in nutrition for maintaining good health throughout life has never been stronger. Completing a degree in Dietetics and Nutrition is your first step to becoming a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN; also known as an RD). RDNs work with people of all ages, cultures, and economic means. RDNs are credentialed health professionals who apply nutritional science to individuals, families, communities and beyond to help their clients address nutritional needs.

Part of the Wegmans School of Health and Nutrition (WSHN), the BS program in Dietetics and Nutrition is a challenging curriculum that prepares students to become RDNs and to practice in diverse settings such as hospitals, clinical practices, other healthcare facilities, universities, government agencies, research facilities, food and pharmaceutical companies, public health organizations, public wellness programs, school food-service, commercial foodservice, journalism, marketing, sports nutrition, and corporate wellness programs.

The Dietetics and Nutrition 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. The program has received full reaccreditation through June, 2023.

A minimum grade-point average of 3.2 and grades of A or B in all required science courses are required for admission and continuation in this program.
