Master of Science in Nutrition with a Coordinated Program in Dietetics

Dominican’s M.S. in Nutrition combines the required higher level of classroom education with practical field experience that will develop your dietetic skills while preparing you to take the RD exam.

Dominican University's M.S. in Nutrition combines graduate level coursework with our supervised practice experience.  Our accredited coordinated program strives to generate future leaders that will successfully enter the dietetics field as competent entry-level professionals.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the number of jobs for dietitians and nutritionists is projected to grow 16 percent from 2014 to 2024, a rate much higher than average. And starting in 2024, ACEND, the accrediting agency for the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, will require a master’s degree for entry-level registered dietitians.

Dominican University is well positioned to meet this growing need. Since 2007, our mission has been to prepare dietetic students for the RD exam through our coordinated and certificate programs. Our program offers a strong foundation in community nutrition using innovative and engaging teaching strategies. Students receive hands-on opportunities to work with diverse low-income families and provide nutrition education while being instructed in evidence-based practices and developing leadership skills.
