How can I pursue a career as a Registered Dietitian?
The University of Connecticut has two undergraduate dietetic programs. One is housed in Allied Health Sciences (the Coordinated Program) and the other in Nutritional Sciences (the Didactic Program). Both programs are accredited by the Commission on Accreditation for Dietetic Education* and provide different routes to becoming a registered dietitian. A diagram depicting both routes may be found at Dietetics at UConn and below. The Didactic Program in Nutritional Sciences provides the academic coursework necessary to apply for a dietetic internship following college graduation. The Coordinated Program in Dietetics is the undergraduate program of study that combines the coursework and supervised practice hours necessary to prepare students for entry-level practice as dietitians.
