Students majoring in Dietetics (DNFS) are required to successfully complete at least one credit in NFS 274. Students majoring in Nutrition and Food Sciences (NFS) are welcome to participate in an internship, but have no requirement.
Some students do their placement in accordance with the semester schedule, working a certain number of hours per week throughout the semester. Other students prefer to gain experience when classes are not in session, either during the summer or between semesters in January. It is also possible to begin your work during the school year, but not complete it until after the semester has ended. Of course, in all cases, a grade will not be assigned until the work is completed.
Students occasionally decide they would like to obtain credit for more than one placement over the time period of their undergraduate experience. It is fine to do so. However, the department may not be able to provide support to get you set up in more than one placement due to time constraints.
