Our graduates work in public health departments and federal, state, and community nutrition programs helping individuals and families make healthy foods choices throughout their lives. They are experts in the art and science of food and nutrition. UND graduates can be found in hospitals and clinics, helping people recover from illness. They are in the food service operations of schools and universities, government agencies, and nursing homes supervising the preparation of nourishing, appealing meals. Others have developed their own businesses or consulting services.
As interest in nutrition has grown, so have the job possibilities for nutrition and dietetics professionals. Dietitians and nutritionists are involved in marketing, sales, communications, and technology. They may work in research programs or teach at colleges and universities. Careers in dietetics and nutrition are limited only by the individual's own imagination, education, innovation, and experience.
