The MS in Nutritional Science and Dietetics offers two tracks, nutritional science and dietetics. The dietetics master’s track is currently available only to students who completed the BYU didactic program in dietetics (DPD). The dietetics track combines a master’s degree with supervised practice (dietetic internship) and other course requirements to qualify graduates to take the Registration Examinations for Dietitians (RD exam). Upon graduation and completion of the RD exam graduates work in multiple areas including hospitals, wellness, large food service operations, business and industry, community health programs, management, and entrepreneurial or private practice.
Research and project opportunities in the dietetics track include nutrition education, management and leadership in dietetics, farm to school nutrition, resting energy expenditure, nutrition assessment and community nutrition.
