This general program will allow students to meet all Didactic Program in Nutrition and Dietetics (DPND) requirements.

Sports Nutrition

This concentration allows the students to take specialized courses in sports nutrition and kinesiology. Students in this concentration will meet DPND requirements.

Learning Objectives 

There are extensive student learning outcomes (SLOs) in the program. The SLOs fall into one of these categories:

Scientific and Evidence Base of Practice

Integration of scientific information and research into practice.

Professional Practice Expectations

Beliefs, values, attitudes and behaviors for the professional dietitian level of practice.

Clinical and Customer Services

Development and delivery of information, products and services to individuals, groups, and populations.

Practice Management and Use of Resources

Strategic application of principles of management and systems in the provision of services to individuals and organizations.

Support Knowledge

Career Possibilities

Graduates at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas , will have a B.S. degree in Nutrition Sciences . They may also have chosen to complete the requirements set by The Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics (ACEND) of the Academy Nutrition and Dietetics (AND) for the Didactic Program in Nutrition and Dietetics (DPND). If the student goes on to complete the requirements to become a Registered Dietitian/Nutritionist (RDN) (completing the ACEND-Accredited Dietetic Internship and passing the national Registration Examination for Dietitians) they will have earned the Registered Dietitian/Nutritionist (RDN) credential. With the RDN, the graduate's career choices are much broader enabling them to be eligible for positions as clinical dietitians in hospitals and other health care facilities, such as long term care agencies. In addition, the RDN credential is required to become licensed in states that require this for dietetics practice (Nevada is a state that requires a license for dietetics practice).

Nutrition Sciences graduates may also enjoy helping professional or student athletes in sports ranging from sprinting to stock car racing. Others may find employment in health clubs, spas, or neighborhood gyms. Others may work in food service for corporations, schools, airlines and the military. Those with inquiring minds may prefer the laboratory, conducting experiments for quality assurance departments, new products offices or drug companies to delineate metabolic pathways. As a young, emerging science, nutrition will be offering opportunities in the future that today are unforeseeable.
