​Nutrition & Dietetics Program

The Department of Family, Nutrition, and Exercise Sciences (FNES) of Queens College, City University of New York offers a Didactic Program in Dietetics through the undergraduate program in Nutrition and Dietetics. This program is based on the standards of Education of the Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics (ACEND) of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (AND) and the goals of the FNES Department.

The curriculum consists of 24 classes (79 credits) including biology, chemistry, psychology, food science, nutrition, medical nutrition therapy, food service management, nutrition counseling, research methods, life cycle and community nutrition. Upon completion of the curriculum and earning a bachelor’s degree (B.S. Nutrition and Dietetics) students will be eligible to start a ACEND approved Dietetic Internship for which they have applied and been accepted into. Students/interns will need to have a Master's degree in order to take the Commission on Dietetic Registration (CDR) credentialing exam to become a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist after January 1, 2024. Therefore all students completing their BS in Nutrition and Dietetics after Spring/Summer 2022 will also need to complete a Master's degree along with a Dietetic Internship to take the RDN exam.

For more detailed information about the program please refer to the Nutrition and Dietetics Student Handbook under Program Resources on the right.
