Community Nutrition and Food (CNF)

Students in the Nutrition and Dietetics major will earn a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree. The Community Nutrition and Food Concentration offers a relevant, evidence-based approach to the didactic and experiential components of the program. Graduates in this concentration will have a broad range of career path options which include nutrition education, food sustainability, and wellness. Graduates will also be equipped to enter the food industry and are eligible to take the Certified Dietary Manager Exam, a lucrative credential in today’s food service industry.

Students who are pursuing OT, PT, PA school, and other health-related careers may also pursue this concentration as a pathway toward their goal. Students should check with their advisor to see what other prerequisites may be required for admission into their program of interest.

 

  • Verification Statement Notice

    This concentration will not culminate in a verification statement which is required for students who wish to pursue a Dietetic Internship to become a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist. Students who wish to become a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist or Registered Dietetic Technician should pursue the Didactic Program in Dietetics (DPD) concentration instead.

  • Job Outlook

    Successful program graduates seek employment from a wide variety of career paths including Community Nutrition and Health Employees, Nutrition Educators, Food Service Directors, Food Sustainability Managers, Recipe Developers, Food Writers, and Nutrition Social Media Developers. Program graduates may also seek advanced academic degrees and certifications.

  • Minor in Food Systems and Sustainability

    Students in this concentration may also earn a Minor in Food Systems and Sustainability by taking only one additional course: either DIE4940 Nutrition and Dietetic Field Experience or an Approved Study Abroad course.

  • Student Opportunities

    There are many opportunities for students to strengthen leadership skills, participate in research projects with faculty, attend professional state and national nutrition meetings, be part of a dynamic food recovery program, and more.
