Rochester Institute of Technology (Nutrition Management)

People are increasingly interested in the nutritional requirements for obtaining good health and living a long life. They are concerned about balanced menus away from home and the availability of special diet menus for those with serious ailments. Physical fitness centers seek educated advice about meal planning and human performance.

Dietitians are involved with people of all ages, cultures and economic means. They enjoy people and learn to understand them as individuals, thereby helping to solve their nutritional needs. Dietitians are health professionals who apply the science and art of human nutrition.

The BS program in nutrition management offers a challenging curriculum that prepares students for diverse career opportunities. Possible career paths may be developed in private practice; community nutrition and public health; wellness; sports fitness programs; education and corporations; clinical dietetics, hospital or long-term-care food management facilities; research for clinical, educational or food manufacturing operations; nutrition education; restaurant consulting; and writing.

The nutrition management program leads to a BS degree that meets the education requirements of the American Dietetic Association (ADA). Students must complete three quarters of approved cooperative education experience. To become credentialed as a registered dietitian, students also need to complete an ADA-accredited supervised practice after graduation and pass the National Registration Exam for Dietitians.
