The major in dietetics applies the science of food and nutrition to the health and well-being of individuals and groups and prepares students with the undergraduate education needed to become a registered dietitian. The Didactic Program in Dietetics (DPD) is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics (ACEND) of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. Successful program completion enables students to compete for placement in dietetic internships, a required step in becoming a Registered Dietitian (RD). Students may also pursue graduate study. Registered dietitians are employed in health care facilities, government and public health agencies, food companies, schools and universities, private practice, and a variety of other settings. Opportunities are also increasing for RDs in wellness and fitness programs and in sales and marketing for business and industry. Students interested in dietetic internships should obtain volunteer or work experience with an RD, and participate in leadership opportunities with the FSHN Club or other clubs on campus.
