Program Updates

Changes in UBC Dietetics Major

The UBC Dietetics Program will be changing to incorporate the feedback from various community stakeholders. The current Bachelor of Science (Food, Nutrition and Health – Dietetics Major) curriculum will be modified to increase the number of accepted applicants and improve students’ understanding of rural and Indigenous health. Additionally, UBC Dietetics is proposing a new 28-month program, Master of Nutrition and Dietetics (MND), which is meant for applicants who already hold a Bachelor’s Degree. We encourage you to refer to the Memo to Community Stakeholders Re Dietetics Program Changes – Updated 20Oct2020 for more information.
