Nutrition and Dietetics

The Nutrition major at Miami University leads to the Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology and Health degree.

Students majoring in Nutrition study people’s nutritional needs and care.  All students in the major complete the Nutrition Foundation and choose their career path by selecting a concentration, either the Community Nutrition for the non-RD student or the Dietetics Concentration for those students planning on becoming a registered dietitian. To become a registered dietitian, Dietetic graduates must complete a clinical experience and pass a professional examination.

IMPORTANT ADVISING INFORMATION: The Nutrition/Dietetic program is a competitive program. A minimum grade expectation of a “C” or better is strongly encouraged, especially in the sciences: BIO 161, CHM 141, 144, 142, 145, 231, 332, and MBI 111. Competitive dietetic internship applicants will have an overall 3.0 GPA or higher.
