General Information

Master’s degree students may wish to combine their graduate studies with a dietetic internship.  BGSU’s dietetic internship program is currently granted initial accreditation by the Accreditation Council for Education of Nutrition and Dietetics (ACEND) of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (AND).  In addition to completing the Master’s degree admission requirements, applicants must participate through the D&D dietetic internship-matching program.  For more information about the dietetics internships at BGSU, see www.bgsu.edu/colleges/edhd/fcs/di/index.html.

If you wish to pursue becoming a Registered Dietitian but do not have a F&N/dietetic undergraduate degree, please contact Carrie Hamady, Undergraduate Dietetics Director at carrieh@bgsu.edu.  She will review your transcripts and help you plan your course of study to meet the didactic requirements of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.  This may require one or more years of undergraduate coursework.
