Combined M.S. in Nutrition (Online) & Dietetic Internship

Enhance your knowledge in nutrition and dietetics with convenient online learning while gaining practical experience WHILE YOU PREPARE TO BECOME A REGISTERED DIETITIAN

Contact us to learn more about our Combined M.S. in Nutrition (online) and Dietetic Internship program.

USJ is pleased to offer accepted dietetic interns the option to simultaneously complete our online M.S. in Nutrition during the dietetic internship.

This would entail starting coursework the summer before your internship starts, taking one or two courses during the fall and spring semester of your internship and completing the degree during the next summer. Earning the dietetic internship verification does not require that you enroll in any classes. The M.S. would be done alongside the dietetic internship. An intern would earn the verification in May as long as all aspects for the internship were successfully fulfilled.

Students who are matched to the USJ dietetic internship automatically meet the requirements for admission to the USJ Masters in Nutrition and receive an acceptance letter. At this point you have the option of two tracks, complete the internship and do not take M.S. courses at this time. Or, choose the new combined track and complete the dietetic internship and the M.S. together.

If you wish to do the combined DI/MS track, as soon as you hear you are matched to the USJ Dietetic Internship you may then fill out the online graduate application to begin classes in May.
