If you’re interested in preparing for a career in nutrition and dietetics, studying at IUP can put you on the fast track to attaining your goal. IUP is an excellent choice for study in health-related fields because, even though it is a large university with state-of-the-art equipment and facilities—not to mention a first-rate faculty—the learning environment is more like that of a much smaller school.

Here are some of the advantages an IUP education can provide to you:

  • A well-rounded nutrition program which includes a strong Liberal Arts component
  • Courses taught by faculty members who have close ties to the professional communities beyond the campus and who are involved in research projects designed to advance the state of knowledge in food and nutrition
  • Access to state-of-the art equipment and facilities unavailable at many smaller institutions and inaccessible to students at many large universities
  • Faculty members who enjoy teaching and are committed to teaching excellence
  • An emphasis on teaching where students become active participants in learning
  • Faculty members who are active in food and nutrition professional organizations
  • Strong academic and career advising in a caring environment
  • Opportunities for hands-on experiences and field work—real-world experience with professional guidance
  • Bright prospects for future employment, acceptance to graduate or professional schools, and dietetic internships
  • Excellent education at an affordable price
  • An active Student Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics providing leadership opportunities and networking
  • A picturesque, pleasant college town of over 25,000 people
