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.
For information on the master's thesis and non-thesis accelerated distance learning programs for registered dietitians, please see here.
In 2011, Nutrition and Dietetics became one of six flagship programs at the University. Dr. Judith Rodriguez, UNF Department of Nutrition and Dietetics chair, discusses this flagship program and how it’s grown on “UNF On The Record,” a weekly radio show featuring campus life, as well as faculty and student research.
