Official Name of Program
Department(s) Sponsoring Program
NYSED Program Code
This pathway is for third year NFS majors who are interested in completing their degree and then continuing at Hunter to obtain a master’s degree and verification statement (students will be provisionally accepted into the program in their junior year but must maintain grade requirements to matriculate into the MS-DPD program).
This accelerated pathway provides the opportunity for undergraduate students to remain at Hunter for their graduate coursework providing students the opportunity for academic acceleration to a graduate degree.
Since the MS-Nutrition curriculum meets the didactic program in dietetics (DPD) requirements established by the Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics (ACEND), the credentialing arm of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (AND), it will qualify students from this BS/MS accelerated track to apply for Dietetic Internships and continue their professional preparation for the Registered Dietitian (RD) credential.
