About

The Dietetics major in the Bowling Green State University is an interdisciplinary degree program that focuses on the principles of human nutrition and foods.

Overview

We offer a bachelor degree in Dietetics at the Bowling Green State University. Dietetics is becoming increasingly important in the health promotion and wellness of people of all ages and in the care of ill people. Rapid advances in medicine increase the dietitian’s role as a member of the health care team.

Various career opportunities are available to the registered dietitian. Clinical and community dietitians work closely with other health professionals in hospitals, nursing homes, outpatient clinics, public health agencies, home health care, and industries in food service management. 

Administrative dietitians direct the planning, purchasing, production and service of meals in medical centers, restaurants and schools.

A dietitian may also work in food processing companies, public relations, computer companies, or the media. Dietitians with graduate degrees may teach or do research in the field. Experienced dietitians may become consultants and go into private practices.

Special Features

  • Experiences in clinical settings are required in several professional courses. 
  • Students in food service management learn to prepare and serve quantity foods. 
  • Students also gain experiences through hospitals, nursing homes, restaurants, and school lunch programs, as well as community nutrition programs.

Programme Structure

Curriculum

  • The dietetics curriculum meets the requirements outlined by the Accreditation Council on Nutrition and Dietetics (ACEND) of the American Dietetics Accreditation. The study of dietetics includes a wide range of courses in the humanities, behavioral and natural sciences, nutrition and food sciences, communication and analytical sciences. Laboratory experiences are an integral part of many professional courses.
  • Graduates must also complete a post-graduate dietetics internship. The final step in becoming a registered dietitian (R.D.) is to pass the national registration examination. As of July 1987, the State of Ohio requires licensure for all practicing registered dietitians.
