The Davis College of Agricultural, Natural Resource and Design offers both an undergraduate and a graduate program in human nutrition and foods.

Both programs prepare students for the next step in becoming a registered dietitian or nutritionist RDN. The undergraduate program is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics and prepares students to apply for a dietetic internship.
