Food and Nutrition Major

Nutrition and Dietetics is a dynamic, expanding, and fascinating career path. As a dietitian, you can make a real difference in people’s lives through improving their nutritional health and working to create healthy food environments. As a registered dietitian you can put your food and nutrition passion to work in healthcare, disease prevention and health promotion programs, fitness and sports operations, foodservices, school systems, technology companies, counseling, research, nutrition and food businesses and even, private practice. Opportunities abound.

While the nutrition field continues to expand, Framingham State University’s dietetic programs offer a solid foundation in the knowledge and skills you need to start you on whatever career interest you choose.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics projects that employment for dietitian nutritionists will grow 16% from 2014 to 2024, much faster than the average for all occupations.
