The Nutrition and Wellness track provides a broad curriculum that includes liberal arts, science, health, nutrition, and Psychology courses. This educational framework provides the knowledge, skills, and values needed for entry into graduate school or a career in nutrition and wellness.
The Nutrition and Wellness track is not accredited by ACEND, therefore it does not lead to an accredited internship. Students in this track are not eligible to sit for the registration examination for Registered Dietitian Nutritionists (RDN). All undergraduate students follow this track upon admission to the Nutrition and Dietetics Department. If a student does not meet the acceptance criteria for either the Didactic Program in Dietetics (DPD) or the Coordinated Program (CP), the student remains in this Nutrition and Wellness track. Additionally, students can select this program after they complete their second year-level courses if they are not interested in pursuing the RDN credential. Students following this track may consider earning a minor in science and or Psychology.
