Preparing You For Success

You explore dietetics through 1,200 hours of practicum practice and a full set of courses. Bradley's wellness emphasis is incorporated into coursework and experiences in clinical, community, food service and wellness settings.

The master's degree gives you the option to complete a thesis or take courses focused on counseling, curriculum and instruction, or global perspectives.
