Course info

Summary

The UT Department of Nutrition offers a Bachelor of Science degree in nutrition with concentration options in Dietetics and in Basic Science. Ours is one of the largest programs in Tennessee and is academically strong so that our graduates are prepared for a successful career and many become leaders in the field.

The program curricula include:

  • Nutrition science: How the body uses nutrients at the cellular level and in the whole body system plus food and nutrient needs throughout the life cycle in both health and disease states. Students have extensive coursework in the sciences to form a basis for understanding nutrient functions. Students in the Basic Science concentration take additional coursework in this area. A senior-level course culminates with learning how to read and interpret the latest nutrition research for practice.
  • The influence of attitudes, knowledge and beliefs on food consumption patterns among individuals and groups: Coursework in psychology and community nutrition is included in the curriculum. Additionally, students in the Dietetics concentration take courses on diet and physical activity assessment and on development of nutrition counseling skills to learn how to help people make healthful changes in eating habits.
  • Communication: Students have coursework in communication studies and many of the major courses include oral presentations and research papers. The ability to critically evaluate nutrition information and effectively communicate nutrition information to other healthcare professionals, administrators, and the general public is a necessary skill.
  • Effective management of food service delivery: Students in the Dietetics concentration have coursework that includes food science, food safety, management, and foodservice operations.
  • The roles of nutrition professionals in a variety of practice settings: All students have coursework on careers in nutrition and those in the Dietetics concentration have a course on professional issues in the practice of nutrition and dietetics.

This Dietetics concentration program is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics (ACEND) of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (formerly the American Dietetic Association (ADA) as a Didactic Program in Dietetics (DPD). Therefore, successful completion of the bachelor’s degree in the Nutrition-Dietetics concentration at UT qualifies students to compete for placement in ACEND-accredited supervised practice programs (most commonly dietetic internships), which are a required next step toward earning the Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN) credential. Following completion of a supervised practice program, students are eligible to take a national registration examination to earn the RDN credential.
