Bachelor's Degree in Dietetics

B.S. in dietetics

Registered dietitian nutritionists, or RDNs, translate the science of food and nutrition to enhance the well-being of individuals and groups. K-State offers two professional programs in dietetics, a didactic program and a coordinated program.

In 2024, the degree requirement for eligibility to take the registration exam for Registered Dietitian Nutritionists, RDN, will be elevated to a graduate degree. The Food, Nutrition, Dietetics and Health department offers several options to fulfill this graduate degree requirement.
