Viterbo’s nutrition sciences program boasts state-of-the-art food science labs, nutrition assessment technology, and personalized learning.
Students in our Bachelor of Science in Nutrition Sciences benefit from state-of-the-art food science labs, nutrition assessment technology, personalized learning from faculty with a wealth of experience in the field, and hands-on field practicum hours for career preparation. With the dietetics industry requiring a master's degree for Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN) roles by 2024, Viterbo University has also been granted accreditation to offer an accelerated one-year Master of Science in Community Medical Dietetics degree. Viterbo students interested in becoming registered dietitian nutritionists will have the option to complete our Bachelor of Science in Nutrition Sciences degree with guaranteed early entry into our Master of Science in Community Medical Dietetics. Unlike didactic programs, this one-year master degree also includes 1,200 ACEND-accredited supervised practice hours, also called a dietetic coordinated internship, which is required to be eligible to take the Registration Examination for Dietitians.
