Master of Science Coordinated Program in Dietetics, Nutrition and Exercise Physiology
The non-thesis Master of Science Coordinated Program in Dietetics, Nutrition, and Exercise Physiology (MS CPD NEP), is a coordinated program (didactic coursework and clinical rotations are conducted simultaneously) in dietetics with an exercise emphasis. The program is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics, the accrediting agency for the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.
Successful completion of this MS program prepares students to test for the Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN) credential. Since the emphasis area of the graduate dietetics program is exercise, some students may be required to take undergraduate nutrition and/or exercise physiology courses that prepares them to be dual credentialed as a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN) and a Clinical Exercise Physiologist (ACSM CEP). A minimum of 1200 hours of supervised practice hours in various healthcare and community settings is required as a part of the master’s program.
The MS CPD program is accredited by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. Washington State University is accredited by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities (NWCCU).
