Dietetics

The dietetics program at K-State is nationally recognized, giving students excellent opportunities upon graduation. Students will take classes in natural sciences, nutrition, food service, and management. Many dietitians work in health-care facilities such as hospitals and extended-care facilities. Dietitians also may be found working in community health settings, food stamp programs, or feeding programs for the elderly.  Dietitians also manage institutional and commercial foodservice operations where they apply nutrition knowledge and managerial skills in the delivery of meals to children and adults.
