Nutrition Science (Arizona State University)
Arizona State University offers a Bachelor of Science in Nutrition Science degree with a dietetics concentration for students interested in becoming a registered dietitian or pursuing a career in the field of nutrition. The concentration provides students with the knowledge and skills necessary to apply for a dietetic internship. Each of these steps is necessary to take the registration exam to obtain a license.
The program is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics. There is no second language requirement, and the math intensity is at the general level. The first math course that students must register for is college mathematics.
Students in this program must take at least 120 credit hours, which usually entails around four years of full-time study. Graduates may contribute to the nutrition field in a variety of areas and settings, such as consulting, school food service, education, marketing and sales of food, and health and nutrition promotion.
ASU's academic programs are spread across campuses in the Phoenix Metropolitan Area; however, unlike most multi-campus institutions, the campuses of ASU are all individually different- each has its own distinct function to fulfill in line with the university's mission.Read more About this school
