About

The Department of Dietetics and Nutrition offers undergraduate studies leading to a Bachelor of Science in Dietetics and Nutrition at Florida International University.

Overview

The undergraduate student may choose from one of two program of studies to earn the degree, dietetics or nutrition science. The dietetics track (Didactic Program in Dietetics) is intended for students interested in becoming Registered Dietitian. The nutrition science track is designed for students interested in molecular nutrition.

The nutrition science track emphasizes the basic sciences—biology and chemistry—and uses this foundation to build up to the nutrition science core curriculum. Students explore optimal health, disease states, human physiology, metabolism, as well as the complex relationship between nutrients/non-nutrients in foods.
