Admissions: Programs of Study

Nutrition and Dietetics

Marywood's nutrition and dietetics program will teach you how to develop appropriate diet plans and exercise regimens for both athletes and non-athletes. Course work also focuses on ways to prevent chronic disease through diets and exercise.

Preparation for Dietetic Internship and RDN Exam

Our accredited nutrition and dietetics program will put you on the path to becoming a registered dietitian nutritionist (RDN). Upon completion of the program, you will receive a verification letter that qualifies you for a yearlong supervised internship. After completing your internship, you will be eligible to take the national RDN exam.

Spanish Curriculum

As the Hispanic population in the United States increases, so does the demand for health care professionals who can serve this population. Marywood's nutrition and dietetics program is one of just a handful nationwide that offers both a traditional curriculum and an alternative course of study that includes a Spanish foreign language component. Studying nutrition and learning Spanish at the same time will give you a distinct advantage over other job applicants and may even earn you a higher salary.
