Food & Nutrition Careers


A food and nutrition degree prepares students for a wide array of potential careers as well as graduate study. Recent graduates are engaged in a range of professional and academic pursuits, including:

  • Graduate programs in nutrition, nursing, and sustainability
  • Clinical dietitians in hospitals and long-term care facilities
  • Hospital foodservice
  • School Nutrition Administrators
  • Public Health – Women, Infant, and Child Nutrition (WIC)
  • Private Practice/Consulting
  • Outpatient clinics

The BS-Dietetics track is an ACEND-accredited program designed for individuals pursuing a career goal of becoming a registered dietitian nutritionist (RDN). Students successfully graduating from the dietetics track will receive a verification statement allowing them eligibility to apply for a dietetic internship program.  If a student successfully matches to an ACEND accredited dietetic internship post-graduation, they will complete a minimum of 1200 hours of supervised practice to become eligible to take the CDR credentialing exam for registered dietitian nutritionists (RDN).
