Dietetics

Dietetics

Dietetics is the study of food and nutrition in relation to preventing and treating disease and maintaining and promoting good health. It is a people-oriented and science-focused field.

Studying dietetics is the first step toward earning the registered dietitian professional credential. Many dietitians work in clinical health care settings such as hospitals and extended-care facilities.

The undergraduate program in dietetics is approved by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics as a didactic program that meets the minimum academic requirements for professionally qualified dietitians.
