Nutrition is an interdisciplinary science that requires understanding of food production, consumption and utilization. The mission of the coordinated Dietetics and Nutrition Major (CDNM) is to prepare entry-level registered dietitian nutritionists through a curriculum that provides active and experiential knowledge and skills for the CDR credentialing exam. Our diverse approach emphasizes critical thinking, responsible citizenship, and integrating research into dietetics practice.
Students will have proficiency in each of the following areas of after completing this program:
Scientific knowledge of nutrition.
Clinical and customer services.
Proficiency in medical nutrition therapy.
Upon successful completion of the academic portion of the major, students will be eligible to complete the fifth year of the CDNM: the required 1200 hour supervised practice (internship) that will enable them to take the Registered Dietitian Nutritionist national registration exam
