La Salle’s Didactic Program in Nutrition leads to the Bachelor of Science in Nutrition degree. Coursework meets all Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics academic requirements and offers opportunities for focused electives or for a minor area of study to match a student’s interests or career goals. Electives may also be used to take additional courses to prepare for graduate study in other health sciences, such as medicine, physician assistant, physical therapy, and others (students may be required to take difference science coursework as well to prepare for these other careers).
Successful Nutrition students have an aptitude for biology and chemistry, maintain a persistent work ethic, enjoy food and working in food service careers, and, like all health care-related fields, have a strong passion for improving the lives of others.
Students who study Nutrition at La Salle will be prepared to enter a wide variety of careers in the growing field of nutrition and wellness. The Didactic Program prepares students to qualify for admission to post-baccalaureate Dietetic Internships and graduate programs leading to the Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RD/RDN) credential. Graduates also qualify to take the exam leading to the Nutrition and Dietetics Technician, Registered (DTR/NDTR) credential. The Didactic Program is also a pathway to La Salle’s Master’s Coordinated Program in Nutrition and Dietetics Practice.
La Salle University’s Didactic Program in Nutrition and Master’s Coordinated Program in Nutrition and Dietetics Practice are both accredited by the Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics (ACEND).
