Dietetics Bachelor's Degree

The online bachelor's degree completion program in dietetics offers professional courses in food, nutrition and foodservice systems management.

Registered dietitians (RDs) are the only health professionals trained specifically in foods and nutrition. They translate the science of food and nutrition to enhance the well being of individuals and groups. This program combines an interest in food and nutrition with meeting needs in wellness, illness and all other stages of the life cycle.
