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

Studying dietetics is the first step toward earning the registered dietitian professional credential. Many dietitians work in clinical healthcare 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 (ACEND) as a didactic program that meets the minimum academic requirements for professionally qualified dietitians.
