Foods & Nutrition
Message from the Curriculum Chair
Welcome to Westchester Community College’s Foods and Nutrition Transfer program, a two year program which upon completion, allows graduates to transfer to a four year baccalaureate program in nutrition and/or dietetics with the ultimate goal of becoming a Registered Dietitian. The program combines the basics of nutrition care with science and liberal arts courses and follows the academic requirements mandated by the Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.
The growing interest in nutrition and dietetics has greatly expanded job opportunities for nutrition professionals. Westchester’s Foods and Nutrition Transfer program provides students with exposure to various future career experiences due to a blended curriculum of classroom instruction and clinical coursework. Faculty who teach in the program are Registered Dietitians with numerous years of experience in the Dietetics field and provide mentorship and guidance, imparting their professional knowledge to students throughout the program.
By choosing courses carefully, most of our graduates are able to transfer and obtain a Bachelor’s degree in Nutrition /Dietetics in two additional years. Program 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.
Please come visit the Nutrition faculty if you have any questions regarding the Foods and Nutrition Transfer Program. Our office is located in the Student Center Building, room 211.
Once again, welcome to our program. I look forward to meeting you.
