Why Nutrition & Dietetics?

  • With increasing emphasis on disease prevention through improved dietary habits, job opportunities for nutritionists and dietitians are expected to increase during the next 10 years.
  • A growing and aging population will boost demand for nutritional counseling and treatment in hospitals, residential-care facilities, schools, prisons, community health programs, and home health care agencies.
  • Public interest in nutrition, increased emphasis on health education, and prudent lifestyles also will spur demand, especially in food service management.
  • Increased public awareness of obesity and diabetes will result in higher need for dietitians and nutritionists specializing in those diseases.
