Program Details

University of Saint Joseph offers students a comprehensive program incorporating core liberal arts requirements and basic science requirements for the first two years. Junior and senior years are professionally oriented to focus on Nutrition courses and include hands-on clinical experience. The Dietetic Internship Program is fully accredited by the American Dietetic Association.

The online program can contribute to an individualized professional development plan tailored to the student's particular needs and areas of interest. The program is specifically designed to enhance and update the knowledge of nutrition or dietetics professionals who already have a background in the field. The degree can be customized to provide those who have a science background to become versed in the science of Nutrition.

This 30-credit, science-based curriculum includes the study of health promotion, nutrition through life's stages, and the latest research on nutrition-related diseases. Students will design their own curriculum in collaboration with the program director to make their coursework particularly relevant to them and their own professional goals.


The admission requirement includes a minimum G.P.A. of 2.5 and a degree in Nutrition (or a closely related field) from a regionally accredited institution. The following three courses must be taken with a grade of B or better for admission consideration: Basic Nutrition, Biochemistry, Physiology
