Cultivating a healthy lifestyle is the key to wellness and longevity. Students who wish to pursue the Dietetic Internship will have graduate-level education and research integrated with supervised practice activities to prepare nutrition professionals to work to improve the health of individuals, families, and communities. If you have a passion for keeping people on a healthy track, a Nutrition and Food Systems MS can help you make an impact in the health of your community, and with the Dietetic Internship program, you can use your real-world experience for the next step in your career as a Registered Dietitian.

The Master’s in Nutrition and Food Systems is designed to allow you to complete your Dietetic Internship along with your graduate degree.
