Dietetics and Nutrition Master of Dietetics and Nutrition

About us

Building on a strong history of innovation in nutrition and dietetics education, research and community outreach, The Ohio State University is proud to offer the Master of Dietetics and Nutrition (MDN). The MDN is a clinical Master degree that provides the didactic education, as well the supervised practice experiences, to meet the competency-based education approach under the Future Education Model to prepare students to practice as an entry-level registered dietitian nutritionist.

The program is administered as a collaboration of the Department of Human Sciences in the College of Education and Human Ecology with the School of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences in the College of Medicine. The Medical Dietetics program was the first program in the country to provide a coordinated program in dietetics, which combines the didactic instruction with the clinical experiences and was an exemplar model in the development of the Future Education Model.
