Track 1: 


Master’s degree seeking students who will complete required coursework and a critical review paper to meet graduate degree requirements + supervised practice hours for the dietetic internship. (completion in two years; supervised practice rotation hours completed in the final year)

Track 2: 


Master’s degree seeking students who will complete required coursework and a research thesis to meet graduate degree requirements + supervised practice hours for the dietetic internship. (completion in two years with up to three years allowed depending on research plan; supervised practice rotation hours completed in the final year)

Track 3: 


Individuals who already have a master’s degree who will complete supervised practice hours for the dietetic internship. (completion of supervised practice rotation hours in one year)

A graduate student must be admitted as a degree-seeking student and be taking at least five credits per semester to be eligible for Federal student aid.  The supervised practice portion of the internship is planned after completion of the NUTR 795 Practicum Nutrition & Dietetics Course and during the intern’s final year of graduate course work. Students must complete the MS in Nutrition and Exercise Science degree requirements and their required supervised practice hours to receive their verification statement to take the registration examination.  Information on the existing MS program offered through the department is available in the SDSU Graduate Catalog (http://catalog.sdstate.edu/index.php?catoid=28) and on the HNS Department website (http://www.sdstate.edu/health-and-nutritional-sciences/graduate-program). 

Focus Areas of Study


The graduate coursework within the SDSU NDI program for an MS degree in Nutrition and Exercise Sciences allows students the option of completing electives towards a community or sports nutrition focus

Note:  The graduate handbook also includes a MS in Dietetics.  This is specifically for our GPIDEA online program.  SDSU NDI interns will be pursuing a MS degree in Nutrition and Exercise Sciences and NOT the MS in Dietetics.
