Program Overview

Ohio University’s Combined Master of Science and Dietetic Internship program is a four-semester program that accepts 10 interns annually. Application to this program is open to students who have completed a bachelor’s degree from a U.S. regionally accredited university or college and Didactic Program in Dietetics (DPD) coursework approved by the Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics (ACEND).

Interns will spend their first two semesters completing graduate classes at the Dublin Integrated Education Center and completing rotations in Central Ohio. The last two semesters, interns will continue graduate courses at Ohio University’s main campus in Athens, Ohio. Second-year internship experiences will be located in Southeastern Ohio. In addition to graduate coursework and internship experiences, interns will complete a graduate project in an area of interest prior to graduation.

Graduates of the program receive a Master of Science Degree and are eligible to sit for the national Registered Dietitian examination. The program currently has a 100% one-year pass rate on the CDR credentialing exam.  Additional program outcomes data are available upon request; please contact the program director, Kim Orben.
