Nutrition Major – Two Options!

At CSB and SJU, the Nutrition department offers both a major and a minor in Nutrition. As a Nutrition major, students can choose Nutrition with or without a concentration in Dietetics. The Dietetics concentration is one step on the pathway to becoming a registered dietitian (RD), while the Nutrition major without a concentration in Dietetics is a very flexible major, allowing students to choose courses that fit their future career goals, whether this be food service management, physical therapy, medicine, public health, graduate school, or a variety of other options.

The dietetics concentration will be gradually discontinued beginning Fall 2023. Students who were enrolled at CSB and SJU prior to Fall 2023 will be able to continue in the dietetics concentration and all appropriate opportunities will be available to them through Spring 2026. All students can continue to major and minor in nutrition.
