Major Dietetics (115 credits)

Offered by: Human Nutrition     Degree: Bachelor of Science (Nutritional Sciences)

Program Requirements

The Major Dietetics, which includes a 40-week internship (Stage) as part of its degree requirements, is a professional program that leads to eligibility for membership in a provincial regulatory body and registration as a professional Dietitian/Nutritionist (R.D. or p.dt). Graduates are qualified for challenging professional and leadership positions related to food and health, as dietitians, nutritionists, and food administrators. The designations "Dietitian" and "Nutritionist" are reserved titles associated with reserved acts in the province of Quebec. As clinical dietitians/nutritionists, dietitians may work in healthcare settings, nutrition counselling centres, clinics, and private practice. As community nutritionists, dietitians are involved in nutrition education programs through community health programs, school boards, and local and international health agencies. The dietitian in the food service sector participates in all aspects of management to assure quality food products and services. Postgraduate programs are available to qualified graduates. The duration of the program is 3.5 years, with the 40 weeks of supervised internship (Stage) integrated into each year in a planned sequence. Successful graduates are qualified to apply for membership with the Ordre professionnel des diététistes du Québec (O.P.D.Q.) and/or other provincial regulatory bodies, as well as Dietitians of Canada.

* Advising Notes for Professional Practice (Stage):

The School firmly applies prerequisite requirements for registration in all required courses in the Dietetics Major. All required and complementary courses must be passed with a minimum grade of C. Undergraduate registration for all Professional Practice (Stage) courses is restricted to students in the Dietetics Major with a CGPA greater than or equal to 3.00. The CGPA requirement is firmly applied. Students in the Dietetics Major who have a CGPA below 3.0 for two consecutive years will not be permitted to continue in the program. Successful completion of each rotation of each level of Stage (Professional Practice) is required to pass that level of Stage. Each level is a prerequisite for the next level. If a student fails one level of Stage, certain conditions will apply to have the option to repeat the Stage and this may include an interview to assess suitability for the profession and potential to successfully complete the program. Students are reminded that ethical conduct on Professional Practice (Stage) rotations is required. The Faculty reserves the right to require the withdrawal of any student if at any time the Faculty feels the student has displayed unprofessional conduct or demonstrates incompetence.

Required Courses (112 credits)

Required courses and Professional Practice (Stage) courses are sequenced in a specific order over nine terms (3.5-year program). See https://www.mcgill.ca/nutrition/programs/undergraduate/dietetics for detailed information regarding the undergraduate program plan.

A Compulsory Immunization

A compulsory immunization program exists at McGill which is required for Dietetics students to practise. Students should complete their immunization before or soon after arriving at Macdonald campus; confirmation of immunization will be coordinated by the Health nurse through Student Services (http://www.mcgill.ca/studenthealth/). Certain deadlines may apply.
