School Selection Criteria

Besides the precise type of program, other benefits or opportunities may play a role in meeting nutrition educational goals. Keep the following in mind as you choose a nutrition school:

  • For future nutrition scientists, nutrition universities with science-based research programs may be a good fit.
  • Some schools may offer community outreach efforts and study abroad opportunities. Students interested in participating in these should check whether they are available at the school(s) they are considering.
  • Consider nutrition colleges that possess research facilities, supervised practice programs and internships for students.
  • Supervised practice programs and internships are provided by nutrition colleges with clinical nutrition degree pathways that help prepare students to advise clients on nutritional issues upon graduation.

Different schools offer varying degree levels, so students planning on pursuing both a bachelor's and graduate degree in nutrition may wish to seek schools that offer both. Other perks that may factor into the decision-making process include emphasis in science, internship or practicum opportunities, and study abroad options.
