Graduates from this emphasis will be prepared to pursue graduate training in many disciplines within the biomedical sciences, especially nutrition or physiology. Students who wish to become a Registered Dietician can do so by completing an accredited didactic program in dietetics at the graduate level, and an approved dietetic internship program. The nutrition emphasis also offers outstanding preparation for premedical or pre-physician assistant students who are interested in understanding the mechanisms by which diet influences health and disease. In addition, this emphasis will prepare graduates for career opportunities as a laboratory technician. Because it is impossible to design one curriculum to fulfill the requirements of every graduate school or career choice, it is the student’s responsibility, in consultation with an advisor, to see that requirements are met for the graduate schools or careers in which the student is interested.
