The MS degree in Nutrition I - IPND Track at The City University of New York meets the requirements of a Didactic Program in Dietetics (DPD) and is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics (ACEND). 


Upon completion of a DPD (Didactic Program in Dietetics) in Nutrition I - IPND Track at The City University of New York, students must complete a Dietetic Internship (DI) and only then can they sit for the national Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN) Exam.

Career perspectives

Graduates of the NUTR-MS program may work as nutritionists in a wide variety of health care facilities including hospitals and public health agencies.

Comprehensive Exam

 All graduate students in the MS-Nutrition Program will be required to take a comprehensive exam to demonstrate understanding of the DPD course content. This exam will be given in the last semester of the program and will serve as the final exam in the Practicum course. The exam will be a multiple-choice exam that is similar in style to the ADA national registration exam for dietitians. In order to obtain the Verification Statement, a student must score at least 75% on the comprehensive exam and maintain good standing in the department.  If a student scores < 75% on the exam, then the student will be allowed to retake the exam.
