What schools have the best reputation in the field of Nutrition Science?
More Answers From Nutritionist Degree Graduates
Host Question: What schools maybe have the best reputation in the field of nutrition science? And does attending a school like that matter when it comes landing jobs?
Guest Answer: The schools that traditionally do have the best reputation when it comes to nutrition science are ones that do have dietetic internships if you’re interested in dietetics. So a lot of times these schools themselves will have their own internship. Also any sort of school that is affiliated with a medical center usually is producing a lot of quality research, and you have really qualified professors that are teaching the material.
Guest Answer: So those traditionally are schools that have really strong programs.
Guest Answer: However, at the end of the day, when you’re talking about applying to internships, what it really comes down to is your GPA, how well you performed in your classes and you understood the material, and to your extracurriculars, so it’s kind of a dance between the two.
Guest Answer: I think where you go certainly matters.
Guest Answer: But I also think that what matters most is what you do with your degree and how you make it yours. But there are some schools that have a really good reputation for nutrition places like Colorado State University, Case Western, UC Davis, unc at Chapel Hill, and NYU, Central, Michigan also has a really good one.
Guest Answer: I’m not familiar with any schools that really kind of stand out above and beyond in terms of nutrition? I mean, there are some that for science or medicine may be stand out, and therefore they would also have a good nutrition program because most of the time as a dietitian, you are going to be working with physicians and nurses and other healthcare professionals.
Guest Answer: So if you look to a school that also has a medicine program, you might have some other connections and opportunities there.
Guest Answer: But overall, I think looking at academics in your school aside from being accredited, you need to just find something that gonna fit for you whether it’s geographic, cost, or convenience, and you can sell yourself in like any other job. It’s networking.
