About Biology Department - see www.aacc.edu
Purpose: Prepares students for transfer to four-year institutions offering Bachelor of Science degrees in nutrition.
Following the completion of this two year transfer option, students would be ready to enroll in an accredited dietetics program at a four-year institution. Once the bachelor’s degree in dietetics is obtained, students would need to apply for and complete an internship experience at an accredited facility. This enables the student to take the registration exam for dietitians, thus earning the credential of “registered dietitian.”
