Careers in Nutrition

Nutrition professionals use food and nutrition to promote health and optimize disease management and quality of life. Some jobs require credentials, such as a registered dietetic technician and registered dietitian-nutritionist, and some jobs may not, such as nutrition educator, food service manager and more. A bachelor’s degree in nutrition from SUNY Plattsburgh prepares you for a wide range of jobs in nutrition and related areas.
