Dietetics is the practical application of nutrition in the prevention and treatment of disease. Dietetics is an exciting and challenging profession because there are many diseases that are related to nutrition. These include coronary heart disease, high blood pressure, stroke, cancer, diabetes, and obesity.
We offer a supportive environment with relatively small class sizes, individual attention from well qualified faculty and opportunities for elective courses. This program is only offered on campus.
Additional opportunities for faculty-student interaction are available through student organizations and research projects. There are opportunities for student research and other activities. Our Student Dietetic Association features many interesting meetings, trips and activities. We have more than 100 dietetics majors in our dietetics program.
