Nutrition and Dietetics

Dear Students,

If you are searching for a versatile career which will allow you to positively impact the health and well being of others, Nutrition and Dietetics may be the perfect opportunity for you! The Didactic Program (DP) RD concentration offered by Louisiana Tech University, a program accredited by the Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics (ACEND), prepares students for application and acceptance into a dietetic internship, which is the next step on the path toward becoming a Registered Dietitian. Our four year baccalaureate program provides students with a strong foundation in the sciences, development of research skills, and opportunities to contribute to the community and the profession.
Louisiana Tech Nutrition and Dietetics has a new concentration option for students who do not wish to pursue the Registered Dietitian career path. The new concentration offers a B.S. degree in nutrition and dietetics while allowing students to obtain a minor in a field that supports their career goals. We are excited to offer this new pathway for students!
The Nutrition and Dietetics faculty at Louisiana Tech University are devoted to helping our students become competent practitioners. We continually strive to improve our curriculum and teaching methods in order to best equip our students for success in the profession.
If you are interested in learning more about a career in Nutrition and Dietetics, I would enjoy the opportunity to discuss this exciting profession with you. If you have already made the decision to join the Nutrition and Dietetics program, I welcome you to this exciting field of study and look forward to working with you to achieve the highest level of learning and success possible.
