Nutrition - MS, DP

Nutrition is a multifaceted science that deals with the nutrients in foods and their functions in the human body. A Registered Dietitian (RD) is a nutrition expert who interprets nutrition science to provide for people’s specific dietary needs to promote optimal health, and to prevent and treat disease throughout the life cycle. The expertise of the RD is used to provide nutrition counseling in clinical and community settings; manage food programs in schools, institutional or business settings; teach in schools and colleges; communicate nutrition information to the public through the mass media; and conduct nutrition research.

The CUNY School of Public Health at Hunter College graduate Nutrition program curriculum meets the didactic program (DP) requirements established by the Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics (ACEND), the credentialing arm of the The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, and qualifies students to continue their professional preparation for the Registered Dietitian (RD) credential.
