Nutritional Sciences Career Opportunities

Students completing a degree in Nutritional Sciences with a high GPA are strongly encouraged to continue to graduate school. Many of our clinically oriented graduates have continued their training to become registered dietitians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants or have gone to medical school to become a physician; others have obtained further training or employment in public health nutrition in government or non-governmental organizations; and some have completed PhD's in nutritional sciences or a related field for opportunities in research and higher education. 

For students who are unsure of their graduate plans, or who are eager to start working, there is a strong program through Career Services that all students are encouraged to use.

  • Clinical assessment and coordination with other health care professionals
  • Health promotion
  • Nutrition education
  • Non-profit program planning
