A bachelor's degree can get you started as a dietitian or nutritionist. These degrees include courses in topics like physiology, clinical nutrition, biology, vitamins and minerals, and chemistry. Students can also participate in a recognized internship during the program to qualify for a dietitian or nutritionist license upon graduation. Master's programs in nutrition can be a good way for those with a bachelor's degree in another field to prepare for nutritionist licensure. These programs take two to three years to complete and require hundreds of hours of supervised clinical nutritionist work. This usually takes place through an internship or clinical practicums in healthcare settings.
