  • A program which is approved for candidacy status by the Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics (ACEND), which qualifies students to take the national registered dietitian exam
  • The advantage of Messiah College’s regional network of organizational partners, offering a wide range of placements for our interns
  • Curriculum emphasis on serving individuals who find it difficult to access the foods needed for a healthy life (food insecurity).
  • A cohort learning model that helps students develop meaningful relationships with one another as they progress through the program
