Nutrition, Dietetics, and Hospitality Management

The Department offers two majors: Hospitality Management (HOSP) and Nutrition (NTRI). The HOSP major emphasizes food, lodging and event services for consumers in the tourism and hospitality industry.  The HOSP major offers two study options: Hotel and Restaurant Management (HRMG) and Event Management (EVMT). The NTRI major offers three study options: Nutrition/Dietetics (NTDI), Nutrition Science (NSPM) and Nutrition/Wellness (NTWE).

Hospitality Management

The Hospitality Management Major prepares students for careers in hotels, resorts, culinary, restaurants, the event sector and other positions in the tourism and hospitality industry. With its focus on instructional research and outreach initiatives, the Hospitality Management program’s mission is to educate exceptional leaders for the State of Alabama and the global hospitality and tourism industry. Faculty concentrate on service excellence, social and ethical responsibility, diversity and inclusion in a practically oriented and intellectually stimulating learning environment.

The major offers students two exciting study options to choose from, including (1) Hotel and Restaurant Management, and (2) Event Management.

Hotel and Restaurant Management Option

The Hotel and Restaurant Management (HRMG) option is designed to prepare graduates for careers in the premium service segment of the hospitality industry.  This focus makes the Auburn HRMT program nationally unique. The HRMT curriculum provides career preparation for hotel management and food and beverage (restaurant) management, including private club management.

Event Management Option

The Event Management option is designed to service the educational needs of those students seeking to advance their careers in the event management field. As is the case both nationally and globally, this sector now makes a significant contribution to the socio-economic wellbeing of the state of Alabama and the nation. The event management curriculum focuses on the planning, execution and evaluation of a myriad of special events including, family, social, sporting, historical, musical and food and beverage oriented.

Academic standards and policies: Students must earn a “C” in all required courses in the Hospitality Management Major. Students must earn a “C” or higher in all pre-requisite courses in the major.

Nutrition

The field of nutrition is concerned with human physiology and biochemistry and their relationship to human health, diet, and well-being. The NTRI curriculum has three options which permit specialization according to students’ specific interests.

Nutrition Science Option

The Nutrition Science option prepares students for health professional schools, such as medical, dental, and physical therapy, as well as for graduate study in the nutrition discipline. The Nutrition Science option serves as a pre-med option.

Nutrition/Dietetics Option

The Nutrition/Dietetics option is designed to prepare students interested in completing the requirements to become credentialed as a Registered Dietitian (RD) and Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN).  This option prepares students for careers in clinical nutrition, community nutrition, public health, nutrition education and counseling, foodservice management, and food and nutrition in industry.  Graduates who successfully complete the Didactic Program in Dietetics are qualified to apply for a post-baccalaureate supervised-practice program, which is a requirement for eligibility to take the National Registration Examination for Dietitians and earn the RD/RDN credential.  The Auburn University’s Didactic Program in Dietetics is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, 120 South Riverside Plaza, Suite 2000, Chicago, IL 60606-6995, (312) 899-0040 ext. 5400.  Http://www.eatright.org/ACEND.

Academic Standards and Policies:  Freshmen and on and off campus transfer students who desire to major in Nutrition/Dietetics will be admitted to Pre-dietetics (NTDX).  To be eligible for consideration for admission to the didactic program in dietetics, applicants must successfully complete at least 45 semester hours of the pre- dietetics curriculum courses, including:

NTRI 2000/2003/2007 Nutrition and Health and

4 of the following 6 science courses:

CHEM 1030/1031 Fundamentals of Chemistry I

CHEM 1040/1041 Fundamentals of Chemistry II

CHEM 2030 Survey of Organic Chemistry

BIOL 1020/1021 Principles of Biology

BIOL 2500 Anatomy and Physiology I

BIOL 2510 Anatomy and Physiology II

Students must successfully complete the lower-division pre-dietetics prerequisite courses as outlined below with a minimum GPA of 2.8 on a 4.0 scale.  No grade lower than a “C” will be accepted in any prerequisite course (BIOL 1020/1021, BIOL 2500, BIOL 2510, CADS 2000, CHEM 1030/1031, CHEM 1040/1041, CHEM 2030, HDFS 2000, NTRI 2000 (2003 or 2007), NTRI 2070, PSYC 2010.)  Criteria for admission include pre-dietetics cumulative GPA, science GPA, and student’s personal statements and career goals. Due to the limited number of seats, achievement of minimum standards does not ensure admission into the Didactic Program in Dietetics.

Program Application:  Pre-dietetic students must formally apply to the DPD typically during the second semester of the sophomore year. Application materials will be posted to the nutrition/dietetics website.  Students will be notified of admission decisions in writing. Students accepted to the DPD must pre-register for the appropriate courses for the upcoming fall semester.

Nutrition/Wellness Option

The Nutrition/Wellness option prepares students for careers in health-related settings. Graduates find positions in non-profit health organizations, hospital-based and corporate-based programs, and federal, state and local health agencies.

Course work in the major must be taken in sequence. On and off campus transfer students should anticipate that additional semesters of study may be required to complete the program.
