D'Youville established the nation's first five-year BS/MS degree program in dietetics.
Dietitians are health professionals with expertise in food, nutrition, management, education and research.
The demand for skilled dietitians is increasing because of a growing older population and an emphasis on disease prevention and treatment through improved health habits.
Earn your bachelor and master of science degrees in dietetics in just five years. Upon graduation, you are eligible to take the national registration examination for dietitians.

- Ability to accept transfer students, including graduates of didactic programs (DPD).
- Gain supervised practice experience in local facilities that support the development of professional skills in dietetics.
- Complete a concentration in advanced nutrition practice, which provides higher-level coursework and experiences in pediatric nutrition, critical care nutrition, private practice, community nutrition, and research.
- Benefit from an excellent career placement rate, nearly 100% annually.
- Access job opportunities not available without a master's degree.
