Foods & Nutrition
Message from the Curriculum Chair - AS Food & Nutrition
Welcome to Westchester Community College’s AS Foods and Nutrition program. Our program prepares graduates for two pathway choices. First is to take the national ANFP Certified Dietary Manager’s credential exam. This opens opportunities in the dietetic profession as entry level supervisory/management positions in health care food service. Second is to transfer to a four-year baccalaureate program in nutrition and/or dietetics.
Our program combines the basics of nutrition care balanced with science and liberal arts courses and follows the academic requirements for successful transfer. The baccalaureate programs offer students the opportunity to take the Nutrition/Dietetic Technician, Registered exam and prepares students for entry into a coordinated master level program with the ultimate goal becoming a Registered Dietitian/Nutritionist.
Students are guided to take courses in sequence for best academic success here at Westchester Community College. I encourage students to make an appointment with me to determine which pathway is best for their career goals.
Our graduates report that they were well prepared with the necessary skills and knowledge upon transferring to another academic institution as they continue to pursue a career in the dietetics profession. I believe this is a testament to the program’s strong curriculum and dedicated faculty.
