    I didn't study dietetics but had several friends that did. From their experiences, she better be prepared to go to grad school otherwise she'll have a tough time finding a job in the field.

    Re: Dietetics - Any students on here?

    My wife was and for the most part she seemed to enjoy the math and science behind the major and the professors. That being said, the pay coming out was low and instead of completing her externship, she got on with a Wall Street Bank in NYC and the rest is history. Like anything, I'd do research (and not just what the FCSC gives out) on careers and pay, etc. 5, 10, 20+ out. I know back in the mid 90's it didn't look great for that major given how smart these girls (the majority were girls) were. Like many things, there was lots of competition to get the best externships.

    What do you do with a dietetics degree?

    My wife graduated with a dietetics degree from ISU. She's spent just about 10 years hitting the different occupations you can have with that degree as well (worked at a hospital, worked as a hyvee dietitian, was the student health dietitian at the U of I, and is now a food service director for a school district in the DM area. If you want to know about it, PM me your info.

    Generally, work in hospitals planning patient meals. But in the last 10 - 15 years I think the field has exploded into health and fitness, and places like Hy-vee. Generally, along with Nutrition Science it is a jumping off point to Graduate School to be a Clinical Nutritionist / Food Scientist etc.

    It's great that now there are more majors with a fitness and diet emphasis, so there are different types of jobs available now.
