How Distance Degrees Work
- Interact with instructors and other students in a virtual classroom
- Use Web-conferencing technology to participate in some required “live” Web classes that are held at set times.
- See your instructors’ materials as though you were sitting in a classroom on the UND campus
- Participate in many online class activities from anywhere, at any time.
- As part of N&D 596, Nutrition Education and Counseling Practicum, you are required to spend one week in Grand Forks preparing for the practicum experience.
- Spend time during that week to interact face to face with your instructors and fellow on-line students.
- Learn how to use the latest in technology to record you practicum experiences from you home location.
Local Nutrition Education and Counseling Practicum
Throughout your distance program, you will complete a total of 180 hours of practicum hours through practicum experiences in the field of nutrition education and counseling. Under the guidance of food and nutrition professionals you will:
- Build interviewing, assessment, and education skills
- Bridge theory to practice
- Develop advanced counseling skills working with a diverse population
