The Human Nutrition and Dietetics 3+2 program is an accelerated track to a Master’s degree!
One of the career options for a student majoring in Human Nutrition – Dietetics is to become a registered dietitian (RD). The Human Nutrition – Dietetics major includes a didactic program in dietetics (DPD) which has been granted Accreditation by the Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics (ACEND), 120 South Riverside Plaza, Suite 2190, Chicago, IL 60606-6995, 312-899-0040 ext. 5400, [email protected]. Steps to become an RD:
If you plan to become an RDN without obtaining a master’s degree, please see an advisor. Spring match of 2022 may be the last time undergraduate students can become RDNs without also obtaining a master’s degree.
***Effective January 1, 2024, the Commission on Dietetic Registration (CDR) will require a minimum of a master’s degree to be eligible to take the credentialing exam to become a registered dietitian nutritionist (RDN). In addition, CDR requires that individuals complete coursework and supervised practice in program(s) accredited by the Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics (ACEND). Graduates who successfully complete the ACEND-accredited Bachelor of Science in Human Nutrition – Dietetics at MSU Denver are eligible to apply to an ACEND-accredited supervised practice program. Graduates who successfully complete the ISPP are eligible to apply to take the CDR credentialing exam to become an RDN.
