Rigorous academics and active community engagement
As a dietetics major, you will complete courses in core subjects including medical nutrition therapy, food chemistry, and life cycle nutrition. You will apply knowledge gained from the classroom setting in hands-on laboratory and community experiences. Additional subjects such as physiology, psychology, oral communication, and biostatistics give you a well-rounded foundation.
Beyond the classroom, you may join the Dietetics and Nutrition Club for Students, where you will be mentored by seniors—and later mentor younger students yourself—as you work on planned community nutrition efforts. You may also work with an IU faculty member on a research project, or design one of your own with their guidance.
Upon graduating, you may complete a supervised internship that will prepare you to sit for a national exam to become a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN).
