Dietitians and nutritionists make a difference in the lives of people every day.
We offer two majors:
Dietetics combines the required classroom learning and supervised practice into a four year plus one summer program. We are only one of about 50 coordinated programs in the entire U.S.
Community nutrition combines classroom learning with a shorter supervised experience of 180 hours. Graduates are eligible to become licensed in North Dakota.
Graduates in both majors practice around the U.S. and the world.
The mission of the Department of Nutrition & Dietetics is to prepare entry-level nutrition professionals who improve the quality of health of people through the promotion of healthy food choices and optimal nutrition. We do this through exceptional teaching, research and outreach.
