Master's Degree in Nutrition and Dietetics

General

Program Description

As the critical role of nutrition in the prevention and treatment of illness becomes increasingly evident, the demand for registered dietitian nutritionists (RDNs) with graduate degrees is growing faster than ever. In addition, beginning in 2024, all new RDNs must have a graduate degree.

With excellent academics and top-notch faculty, Ball State’s graduate program in nutrition and dietetics will prepare you for success in one of the country’s most promising job markets.
