The Department of Dietetics & Nutrition has a focused vision: Be recognized for excellence in dietetics and applied nutrition research, which serves as the catalyst for quality education and responsive community service.

We conduct research to:

  • Advance the profession of dietetics and nutrition
  • Promote nutrition as a critical part of disease treatment/prevention
  • Integrate food and nutrition services in clinical, home, and community-based social and health networks
  • Train dietetics and nutrition professionals who are sensitive to the needs of a culturally diverse population. 

Our department supports its program mission by offering two accredited programs preparing dietetic students to become the dietetic professionals of the future.

Each program is committed to preparing you in pursuing excellence in professional and scholarly endeavors. The programs prepare competent and intellectually curious nutrition professionals and leaders like you in all areas. You will be prepared for the challenges in an era of globalization, scientific and technological advances and demographic changes. Above all, you will have the knowledge and skills to pursue an entry-level practice or a dietetic internship or continue to further your education in graduate programs.
