Accredited and Grounded

Concordia's Nutrition & Dietetics program is unique not only in that it's accredited as a Didactic Program in Dietetics by the Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics (ACEND) but the liberal arts are incorporated throughout the curriculum. You'll develop skills in critical thinking and problem solving while you learn hands-on with a class assignment to prepare food for more than 50 people or present a poster at the state dietetics convention. Many nutrition and dietetics students choose to work in Dining Services on campus to learn more about food management.

Get hands on: the Fargo-Moorhead area is full of volunteer opportunities, including hospitals, Meals on Wheels, a food pantry and nursing homes. There are also many networking opportunities with local health professionals.
