Registered dietitians help others learn about food, nutrition and lifestyle choices to keep them healthy. The course work is challenging, and the career possibilities are exciting and numerous. The Bachelor of Science in Dietetics' curriculum provides a broad and balanced foundation in all of the core areas of dietetics.
