Nutrition and Dietetics at Drexel University is designed to provide both the didactic coursework and supervised practice necessary to prepare students to become Registered Dietitian Nutritionists (RDN).


Using knowledge of nutrition science, biology, chemistry, physiology, biochemistry, psychology, and statistics, RDNs address the nutrition needs of individuals or groups, through prevention or management of illness or chronic disease. Upon successful completion of the program, students are eligible to sit for the entry-level exam to become an RDN. Nutrition and Dietetics at Drexel University fulfills the requirements of the Accreditation Council on Education in Nutrition and Dietetics (ACEND) Future Graduate Education Model.

Key facts:

Students spend the first two quarters in the program in the classroom, taking foundation courses. At the completion of these courses, students must pass a comprehensive exam. Beginning in the third quarter, in addition to taking 3 - 6 credits of didactic coursework, students will enroll in 2 credits of supervised practice (up to 24 hours per week) to develop and demonstrate competency in dietetics practice. Supervised practice will be completed at locations in and around the Delaware Valley, or in locations outside of the area with approval from the Program Director. Students have the option to complete a research thesis. Applicants are encouraged to visit the Program website to review the research programs of the department's faculty. The program is offered on a full-time basis; students are admitted only in the Fall term.
