Welcome to our home page! The Nutrition and Dietetics program results in a bachelor of science degree and helps prepare students to become registered dietitians/registered dietitian nutritionists (RD/RDN). This CFND concentration is structured within the major of Hospitality Management and Dietetics (HMD) at WKU. The major is within the Department of Applied Human Sciences.
Dietitians translate the science of food and nutrition to healthy lifestyles. In addition to disease prevention, dietitians are a trusted source to help people manage diabetes, heart disease, weight, and food allergies.
Students interested in becoming an RD/RDN should be committed to academic achievement and have a strong science foundation. Courses in food preparation, medical nutrition therapy, management, biology, and chemistry are taken. This vital and growing profession offers a variety of career opportunities that include nutrition counseling, wellness, and food service management.
