Our undergraduate Nutrition and Dietetics students acquire a strong academic foundation of knowledge and skills to meet the required coursework and experiences to apply to either a Dietetic Internship or a Coordinated Master’s Program in Dietetics in order to become Registered Dietitian/Nutritionists (RDNs). 

PLEASE NOTE, the Nutrition and Dietetics programs are being redesigned to align with recommendations from the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics on the future model for dietetics education for the preparation of RDNs. The Commission on Dietetic Registration (CDR) will require a Master’s degree for registration eligibility beginning in 2024. Information about new programming will be made available after necessary approvals have been obtained. The Department of Sports Medicine and Nutrition is committed to providing education and training to prepare students seeking to become RDNs and will continue to provide programming that meets ACEND and CDR requirements.
