Department of Nutrition & Dietetics


The University of North Florida Nutrition and Dietetics Department engages and transforms students and faculty into valued nutrition and health professionals who make significant contributions to their communities through discovery of new knowledge and commitment to service.


The University of North Florida Nutrition and Dietetics undergraduate and graduate programs are committed to transforming students into valued professionals through the pursuit and acquisition of knowledge, skills, attitudes, and behaviors essential for lifelong learning.


The BS/DPD and MS/DI programs are accredited by the Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics (ACEND) of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, 120 South Riverside Plaza, Suite 2000, Chicago, IL 60606-6995, (312) 899-0040 ext 5400. Students wishing to become registered dietitians will also need to complete a post-baccalaureate degree experience in an ACEND accredited internship (supervised practice) program and pass a national registration exam. Internships are competitive in nature and range from 6 months to 2 years in length. Most of these programs require that applicants utilize a centralized computer matching process called D&D Digital.



The Doctorate in Clinical Nutrition will be accepting applications in Spring 2016 for Fall 2016 admission! Please e-mail us at for more information.
